I'm Number One...

Spain
... in Portugal.

The first translation of A DANCE WITH DRAGONS is just out. And the gold medal for fastest translation goes to Portugal.

Mind you, my Portugese publisher splits each book into two volumes, so this is only the first half of DANCE... but even so, the first volume is in the bookshops, and I'm told it has vaulted to the top of the Portugese bestseller lists.

So... which country will get the silver medal? Spain? Italy? Germany? Your guess is as good as mine, but I'll keep you posted.

Meanwhile, back in the States, DANCE fell to #3 on the NYTimes list last week, and this week is down to #4. But still in the top ten, nine weeks after publication.

Actually, Norway released the first volume on May 3, and the second volume August 22, so the silver goes to Croatia and "only" bronze for Portugal ;o)

Norway released DANCE?

Norway hasn't even published the first four books, so far as I know. At least I haven't seen copies.

Did they release those as well? Or begin the series with volume 5?

Wow... Seems my brain doesn't do school well after many years working. After an intense few days it obviously has shut down completely and not even noticed that it was Dance and not Game that was mentioned. So I guess we don't even place in the top 10 or so. *blush*
