About 2,500 copies in hardcover will put you on the NY Times hardcover best-seller list, probably Top-20 to Top-15 depending on what other books are out that week. If we sold 1,000 copies a day for the first three days, we'd be up there for sure.
At least, we should be up there if we sold that many. The Times has it's own formula, and we'd literally have to talk to someone there who could see our sales figures. The Times does not truck with bullshit, they have to check these things out.
Still, knowing that in 15 hours, we are 1/3 of the way to a Top-10 NYT best-seller, and we're just selling from our little-ol' website, and we have no advertising or distribution? Yeah. We're all swaggery.
