: : : Interesting to see that the New York Times bestseller list has added a new fiction category, Combined Print and E-book fiction. Of course, "The Help" by Kathryn Stockett leads that list (for about the zillionth week in a row).
: : Interesting. However, a zillion is a bit of an exaggeration; Stockett's debut novel has "only" been on the NYT best seller list for 110 weeks (so far) and has "only" sold sold five million copies. Not bad for a novel that nobody wanted to publish.
: After two years, it's still number one. Does anybody have an idea what the record is for a book to stay at the top of the best sellers lists?
Not sure, but Dan Brown's novel "The Da Vinci Code" sold 80 million copies.
