‘Twilight’ by Stephenie Meyer – Little, Brown Books
The Twilight series is no stranger to accomplishment, and the latest feat is the fact that Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight has become one of only thirteen novels to pass the two million mark in sales in the United Kingdom this century.
According to The Bookseller, “Stephenie Meyer follows in the footsteps of J K Rowling, Dan Brown and Mark Haddon – the only other authors to have achieved the two-million-in-the-21st-century feat.”
Quite a group to be a part of, no?
Another interesting statistic offered by the source hones in on just how much of a per capita impact the series has had on U.K. fans.
“Last year, one in every 47 books bought in the UK was penned by the US novelist [Stephenie Meyer], while almost 20 pence in every pound spent on a children’s fiction title went towards one of her Twilight novels.”
One can’t help but wonder how those numbers would look in the United States . . . probably pretty similar, don’t you think?
