Go, Read: Brian Hibbs On Bookscan Numbers, 2012

Brian Hibbs has his yearly look at Bookscan numbers up over at CBR. I have not read the article myself, not yet, although I'll get to it soon and write up any observations I have and publish them here. I used to do battle with these numbers and Hibbs' reporting of same, but since then a) Hibbs has toned down some of the excesses of rhetoric, and b) the shortcomings of these numbers have become much more widely known among smart fans and readers, of which you are one. I do appreciate Brian doing this report every year, and I look forward to reading it.
