Last night Barnes & Noble announced that Dan Brown had set bookselling records at the massive chain–breaking “all previous one day sales for adult fiction.”
In addition, the company noted that pre-orders for “The Lost Symbol” were higher than orders for any book in the bookseller’s history. The book is the top digital book on the site as well. And, if you are one of the few remaining readers who need to find out more about Brown’s five-million copy book blitz, GalleyCat has it covered.
Here’s more from Jaime Carey, Chief Merchandising Officer at Barnes & Noble: “It’s not every day you get to sell such a rich collection of new titles including such authors as: Dan Brown, Jon Krakauer (‘Where Men Win Glory: The Odyssey of Pat Tillman’), the late Senator Edward Kennedy (‘True Compass’), and Paul Harrington (‘The Secret to Teen Power’), and then round out the week with an Oprah Book Club selection to be announced on Friday.”
