The Twilight Saga Official Illustrated Guide and Hits Top Indie Book List

According to the publishing industry website Galleycat, The Twilight Saga Official Illustrated Guide made its debut in the Indiebound list’s number 4 spot.

“We’ve collected the hardcover books debuting on Indiebound’s Indie Bestseller List for the week ending April 17, 2011–a sneak peek at the books everybody will be talking about next month.

(Debuted at #4) The Twilight Saga: The Official Illustrated Guideby Stephenie Meyer: “This comprehensive handbook-essential for every Twilight Saga fan-is full-color throughout with nearly 100 gorgeous illustrations and photographs and with exclusive new material, character profiles, genealogical charts, maps, extensive cross-references, and much more.” (April 2011)”

The Indiebound list covers items purchased at independent bookstore like King’s English in Utah, Changing Hands in Arizona, or Books of Wonder in New York.  Chain book stores like Barnes and Noble and Borders see their purchases reflected in places like the USA Today, Wall Street Journal, Publishers Weekly, and New York Times book lists. Certain indie book stores also have their sales count on those big name lists as well.  The larger book lists results usually have a two week lag, so the guide will probably not be on any of them this Friday.
