A reporter asked me yesterday how many people had read Monkey with a Pin now. The answer I gave him was that I just did not know for sure but I knew it was probably over 5000, as that was the number of unique visitors I’d had to this website – see screenshot below.
The reason I don’t know for sure, is that this figure excludes a number of other potential readers:
- People finding the book listed in the top finance books at Smashwords and downloading it directly there.
- People Googling and going direct to either Google Books to read/download or Amazon.
- The number of people who have forwarded the book to friends. In my reader survey, 90% reckon they will tell friends to read it and most at least two people.
