Story collection soars after Fry Tweet

A book of short stories has leaped up Amazon’s book charts to become second  only to Dan Brown after Stephen Fry endorsed it on his Twitter feed.

Early today (10th September), the actor told his near-750,000 followers: ”You will not read a more dazzling book this year than David Eagleman’s Sum. If you read it and aren’t enchanted I will eat 40 hats.” The book subsequently rose by nearly 250,000% in the Movers & Shakers list.

Stephen Fry ??r inte bara en beg??vad sk??despelare, han ??r ocks?? en mycket flitig twittrare och ganska flitig bloggare.

N??r han b??rjade blogga skakade han pryln??rdsv??rlden genom att visa sig vara en fanatisk och mycket kunnig pryl??lskare, men han har f??rst??s m??nga andra talanger ocks?? ??? inte minst att han skriver en v??ldigt vacker och njutbar engelska (l??nk till bloggen finns nedan).

Som twittrare ??r han antagligen ??nnu mera popul??r ??? 750 000 f??ljer honom! S?? n??r Fry twittrade om en bok som han gillar kunde det bara g?? p?? ett s??tt: f??rs??ljningen sk??t i taket, rapporterar Bookseller.com.

P?? sin egen blogg kommenterar Fry saken s??h??r:

???I try very hard not to use Twitter for the purpose of plugging anything commercial unless it is an absolutely genuine enthusiasm, a discovery I feel I just have to share. Eagleton???s ???Sum??? is an example of this and while I am pleased that my tweeting had such a positive effect, I have to confess that the figures are a little alarming. Imagine how many books and manuscripts are on their way to me even as we speak. What have let myself in for now????

Men f??rfattaren David Eagleman ??r f??rst??s ganska n??jd.
