    Today is the day I guess I get kicked off the NYT bestseller list

    By Jennifer 8. Lee | April 9, 2008

    So Wednesday afternoons, the NYT bestsellers are revealed. Today the list comes out for the the week closing Saturday, April 5, and I think after a happy three-week run, The Fortune Cookie Chronicles will fall off the extended list.

    After popping in at #26 during my second week of publication, the last two weeks, I have squeaked in at #34 and #33 without expecting to make it. So I feel like the girl who got the surprise bronze medal (who is generally happier than the person who gets the unexpected silver medal, except for Paul Wylie in 1992, the happiest silver medal).

    The burst of April books is likely to push it off, plus I can sense from my Amazon ranking it’s slowing, but not too badly, just enough to tip it over. Fortune Cookie Chronicles is just chugging along…
