I don’t usually post anything at the weekend, but this is just too exciting to wait – and anyway, it might all have changed by Monday. Today my laptop went into something of a meltdown with its bookmarks, so I had to go into my own Amazon listings like an outsider. I opened the front page of Amazon.co.uk, typed in “money laundering”, selected “in Books”, and then fell off my chair. One of my “All You Need to Know” piggies – the one for UK banking sector staff – is listed first. First! This is Big News, as it raises the piggy’s profile quite significantly: his snout is now definitely visible above the sty wall. And the listing also tells me that this little piggy went to market rather effectively: he is now the 27th best-selling title in the Amazon category of “Books > Business, Finance & Law > Professional Finance > Banking”. So many thanks to everyone who has given a home to one of these little piggies.
