As revealed last week by the book publisher Simon & Schuster, Inc. (Pocket Books), World of Warcraft: Arthas, Rise of the Lich King by Christie Golden was a complete success reaching # 16 in the New York Times Best Selling Books List (Under the Hardcover Fiction category) within barely 4 days after its official launch (April 21). The list appeared on New York Times Online this past Sunday. I was told recently that ARTHAS Collector’s Edition is almost sold out according to the publisher. Only 10,000 Collector’s Edition with Christie’s signature and wrapped in a leather-box were printed. You still have a chance at buying the few remaining while supplies last. Its hot and going with the wind. Hurry up! You can still order it exclusively here.
Rankings reflect sales, for the week ending Apr. 25, at many thousands of venues where a wide range of general interest books are sold nationwide. These include hundreds of independent book retailers (statistically weighted to represent all such outlets); national, regional and local chains; online and multimedia entertainment retailers; university, gift, supermarket, discount department stores and newsstands.
