Twilight Series as Graphic Novels

Ask most bookstores what their top-selling Young Adult titles have been for the past year, and you're likely to hear "Stephenie Meyer, Stephenie Meyer, Stephenie Meyer." It's true for us as well. The Twilight series (Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn) have been HUGELY popular, by far surpassing most other YA titles. (Although I must tell you that, YTD, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, by Sherman Alexie, has slipped into third place, pushing one of the Twilight books into "lowly" fifth place.) If you are one of the many who just can't get enough of all things Twilight, then you'll be happy to hear that on the horizon are graphic novel versions of the Twilight series. The books will be published by Yen Press, and the artwork is being created by Young Kim, a Korean artist. No publication date has yet been set -- but stay tuned and we'll let you know as soon as we hear anything.

For those of you who have been waiting for Eclipse, Book Three in the Twilight series, to be published in paperback, your wait is almost over. The paperback is due to hit stores on August 4th. If you just can't wait, however, stop by Broadway Books this weekend for our big sidewalk sale, where, for the first time, we are offering all hardcover fiction (including YA titles) at 25% off. The sale starts Friday, July 17th, at 10 am and runs through Sunday, July 19th, at 5 pm when we close. Eclipse in hardcover is $19.99. With a 25% discount, the book is only $14.99 -- only $2 more than the paperback price -- and you don't have to wait until August! While you're here, pick up the fourth book, Breaking Dawn, also at 25% off. Why not? Good prices and a chance to support your local independent bookstore. A definite win-win.
