I haven't checked any book stores recently. Maybe Fry's noticed a drop in popularity of Perl books. Someone should email them to ask.

If you really want to see a drop, wait until it's closer to Perl 6 time, when stores won't know whether to stock the old Perl 5 books or wait for the Perl 6 books, and newbie programmers won't know which to learn.

    Newbies will almost certainly just pick up Perl 6 books — especially if they're used to the Microsoft method of marketing, where the higher number is always "better" (tongue firmly in cheek).
