Watching the Book in Sales Rankings / A Great Review!

I'm learning a lot about the world of publishing, like if you self-publish in a "print-on-demand" manner, as it is with my book "Ghosts and Spirits: Insights from a Medium," if you do book signings, you either have to buy them from the publisher and sell them in a store on consignment, or have the store buy them, and you buy up the unsold copies.
Meanwhile, the publisher's website (Virtualbookworm.com) is selling the book (I HIGHLY recommend them!); as is BarnesandNoble.com and Amazon.com among many others.
I checked the sales rank on the book (although I won't know how well the book is financially selling until 90 days after a given month) on Barnes and Noble.com and Amazon.com. Here are those standings today:
1) BarnesandNoble.com Sales Rank: 92,581 (out of how many, I don't know)

2) Amazon.com Sales Rank: #68,890 in Books (See Bestsellers in Books) ***WHAT IS INTERESTING? Yesterday, it ranked somewhere like 386,400 on Amazon!***
Popular in this category: Books > Religion & Spirituality > Occult > Supernatural, it ranks #30!! (THIS IS UNBELIEVABLE TO ME!)

A GREAT REVIEW! - If you buy a book on Amazon.com or BarnesandNoble.com, you can write a review. The first (and only) review on Amazon so far choked me up!
Here it is:

I've read plenty of books dealing with spirits, ghosts and the like while experimenting and exploring my own gifts. I have to say that none of them ever really delved into the detail and personal level that this books does. It offers a more distinctual look at the supernatural elements around us and how they work. The scientific aspect of it was insightful and answered a lot of questions that I had that other books could not. I give this one 5 stars! A must-read for budding mediums and other psychics, or even if you just want a good source of info about the supernatural!

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
