"The Lost Symbol" sales top 2 million

It was inevitable, really. Nobody listens to me.

From the AP:


"Dan Brown's new novel has passed the 2 million mark and bested Bill Clinton's My Life in the record books.

Doubleday announced Tuesday that hardcover, audio and e-book sales for The Lost Symbol topped 2 million copies for its first week of release in the United States, Britain and Canada. The total is "well over'' 2 million for English-language editions worldwide, according to Doubleday spokeswoman Suzanne Herz, who declined to offer a specific number.

Herz did say that around 5 percent, or 100,000 copies, of The Lost Symbol were sold as e-books. Doubleday released the digital edition at the same time as the hardcover despite industry worries that e-sales might take away business from the more expensive paper text."
