4th Bear #3 on top 10 Hardcover List!

Just caught this in the Sept 8th Entertainment Weekly -

Last week T4B was #7 on the top 10 Hardcover book sales (the first week of release in the US). This week it is listed as #3.

Congrats Jasper!

Here's the blurb after the notice: Best known for his Thursday Next fantasy-mystery series, Fforde turns up here with the second of his Nursery Crime books featuring Det. Jack Spratt. It follows "The Big Over Easy," which pops up below on the paperback chart.

Top 10 Paperback list shows The Big Over Easy at #5, last week it was #2.

I looked at last week's issue, but they didn't divvy up by Hardback and Paperback, but rather Fiction vs Nonfiction, and neither books made the fiction list. I don't know how they compile their data...
