Stephenie Meyer Tops USA Today's Best Selling Book List for 2nd Straight Year!


In 2009 & for the 2nd straight year, Stephenie Meyer's Twilight series swept the top 4 spots on USA Today's Best Selling Book List. This is historic because in the lists 16 year history no other author, not even J.K. Rowling, has managed to accomplish that! 16 other Vampire books benefited from the Twilight wave & made it into the list of 2009's top 100 most popular books:

"Led by Stephenie Meyer's Twilight series, vampires devoured USA TODAY's Best-Selling Books list in 2009.

For the second year in a row, Meyer swept the top four spots. No other author — not even J. K. Rowling— has done that in the list's 16-year history.

Meyer's coattails pulled 16 other vampire titles onto the list of the year's 100 most popular books.

"Meyer had an unbelievable impact," says Michael Norris, books analyst for Simba Information, a market-research firm. He wonders what publishers will do when what he calls " 'the vampire industrial average' falls. Every cycle has an end."

But for now, Meyer — who has also benefited from Twilight movie adaptations, with more to come — has turned "the YA (young adult) category into the PG-13 of books," he says. "She's not just read by tweens and teens, but by a lot of 30-year-old women." "

Well because of Twilight I read Charlaine Harris's Sookie Books, Kristen & PC Cast's House of Night Series, and now reading Cassandra Clare's Mortal Instruments. All of them include vampires. So I guess it is the "vampire industrial age".

Yeah for Stephenie Meyers...in to hopes she will finish Midnight Sun someday. The only other vampire books I've read are the Vampire Diaries, I found them stupid and made no sense, though I acutally like the show on TV, it's
much better than the books....GO ROBSTEN...
