PostgreSQL | PostgreSQL Book Market "up 84%"

According to this post by Tim O'Reilly of O'Reilly books fame, the market for PostgreSQL books is "up 84% over a year ago", at least in the US market. This is based on data for the entire market, not just O'Reilly publications (see an earlier post for more information on the methodology; sadly O'Reilly analyzed the data with MySQL). With more and more books such as Beginning PHP and PostgreSQL 8 appearing, this is not surprising, and a further sign that PostgreSQL is gaining much-deserved mind-share.
