    Number FOUR, suckas!

    Yangfa just posted this on SiGneL:

    according to the Sunday Times 8 October 2006 edition of LifeStyle, "SQ21: Singapore Queers in the 21st Century" has gone up to the number 4 spot in the list of non-fiction bestsellers.

    it's the only book in the top 5 without a financial/business element, & beating "Singapore: The Encyclopedia" (at no. 7 - in which homosexuality is not given a single mention), "Ten" (by Vincent Ng, at no. 8) & Neil Humphreys at no. 9.

    UPDATE: Here's the list!
    Bestsellers - Non-fiction

    1. Secrets of Self-Made Millionaires by Adam Khoo
    2. Get Rich with Water by Lillian Too
    3. One Business, 99 Lessons by Nanz Chong-Komo
    4. SQ21: Singapore Queers in the 21st Century by Ng Yi-Sheng
    5. Freakonomics by Steven D Leavitt & Stephen J Dubner
    6. The Year of Magical Thinking by Joan Didion
    7. Singapore: The Encyclopedia edited by Tommy Koh et al
    8. Ten by Vincent Ng
    9. Final Notes from a Great Island by Neil Humphreys
    10. Marley & Me by John Grogan


    Pretty incredible, huh? Last month it was no.6, and I was already amazed at that. It's especially thrilling to me that we beat a book with a bare-bodied wushu champion on the cover - but then again, Get Rich With Water?????
