WHEEL OF TIME gets its sixth consecutive #1 NYT bestseller
Back in 1998 the eighth Wheel of Time novel, The Path of Daggers, became the first book in the series to hit #1 on the New York Timesbestseller lists. Remarkably, every book released so far in the series has managed the same feat and Towers of Midnighthas made it six in a row. Even more startling is that Towers of Midnight sold 12% more copies than The Gathering Storm did in the first week and displaced crime mega-seller John Grisham's new novel from the #1 spot in only its second week on sale (last year The Gathering Storm knocked Dan Brown off the top spot, but that was after a much longer period).
