No twilight for ‘Twilight’

The Twilight series has dominated the top spots on the Amazon bestseller list for so long, that it’s stunning to see a new title hit at #1 today.

It may be new, but it’s still part of the Twilight phenomenon. It’s the “movie companion” to Twilight, coming out Nov. 11 (the trailer will be shown in some theaters this weekend). The pub date for the book is 10/28, but Stephenie Meyer said on her blog today that Amazon is already beginning to ship copies. The libraries that have it on order are showing heavy reserves.
