Historic Day!

Publisher's Weekly reports that for sometime today, Watchmen was the #1 seller on Amazon.com. I heard Teri Lesense talk about some of her upcoming research that suggests that seeing a movie before reading the book actually helps students' motivations to do the reading. Looks like there might be a little bit of that going on here?

A graphic novel selling better than any other book on Amazon. And it is my favorite graphic novel, to boot. It might be time to dance naked in the streets, faithful readers. Maybe I'll suggest that to my "Teaching the Graphic Novel" class tonight, as we conclude our study of Watchmen, lol....
