A few days ago I wrote that I got my copy of The System of the World, the latest book by Neal Stephenson. Yesterday I searched for the "The System of the World" on Google and learned to my surprise that the link to my blog entry was the 3rd top hit. Interesting. The first hit was Slashdot, the second one Amazon, then me and then lots of book sellers. The original "A Treatise of the System of the World" by Isaac Newton was something like number 33.

What does that mean? Probably not much, especially if you consider the fact that I didn't write anything about the content of the book. But there are two things I learned from this: First, Planet KDE seems to be carefully watched by Google, and second, I should consider selling books over the Internet.
