Jaycee Dugard, 'Game of Thrones' author top Amazon list

Turns out Oprah's couch is not the only route to selling books on TV.

Jaycee Dugard, 'Game of Thrones' author top Amazon list


Turns out Oprah's couch is not the only route to selling books on TV.

"A Dance with Dragons," the long-awaited fifth book in the George R.R. Martin series that inspired HBO's "Game of Thrones," was released today and sits at No. 2 on Amazon's bestseller list for both hardcover and Kindle. (I'll be downloading the Kindle edition as soon as I've posted this.)

No. 1?

That would be Jaycee Lee Dugard's "A Stolen Life," the kidnapping victim's memoir of the 18 years she spent in captivity. Also released today, the book no doubt  got a sizable boost after Dugard's appearance Sunday with Diane Sawyer on ABC's "Primetime," which devoted two full hours to her story.

About this blog
Yes, I'm a TV critic. But I've always believed my job is less about thumbs -- up or down -- and more about the conversation. Because the more choices we have, the fewer people in our lives know what we're talking about when we say, "Did you see that?" And that's when television really starts to get interesting.
