Well I bought my 2 books last night at Barnes and Noble"s" and they were still proudly displayed at the first display when you walk in. Interestingly enough, his book stack on the display was the lowest, meaning peeps were snatching it up last night.
Hell of a job there Jimmy, you made the list!

If you are talking about the signing at Carle Place, they set up that table in the front for the signing. Still, a ton of people bought the book at the signing. That store should be really happy with the turnout and the number of books they sold.

Turnout was amazing - people were lined up around the entire upstairs. B&N has had book signings before but I don't think they've ever had a turn out like that

This may very well be the final sign of the impending apocolypse.



Right now Al Gore is saying "who the fuck is Jim Norton???"

Al Gore indeed.
I love the fact that Jimmy's book is #4 on a very prestigious list. non-fiction hardcover is a pretty big category with a lot of mainstream authors.

so congrats Jimmy

I think getting to #4 is awesome, especially his first week out ....he's down to #11 this week (second week on the list)....would love to see him get back into the Top 10 .... too bad audiobooks don't count towards the hard cover non-fiction book sales.

For someone like Jimmy to put a book out, and it hits #4 on the NY Times Best Sellers list in its first week, is a great accomplishment. His career has come a long way, and I am so happy to see a talented comic like Jimmy doing so well!

Congrats Jimmy!

I did my part: Book and Audio book from Amazon, book from the MA Virus Tour (signed by Jimmy) and 3 books from the Signing at Carle Place (1 for a coworker, 2 for me - Since Ant was signing them too I figure I'd get a spare as a future gift to someone undetermined once I get Opie to sign it too). Had to get my Boss one, He'll never have a chnace to see anyone from the show and I lucked out and just happened to have had a last minute schedule change that took me out of Maryland and in NYC the day of the signing.

So all together is 5 books and 1 audio book. I'll read the book from Amazon, the others will be in a safe place until I can get Opie to sign the two Ant signed.
