The numbers are in!

How do U think J.K. Rowling's newest book, The Casual Vacancy: A Story That Is Not Harry Potter, did after just being released this past Thursday??

If your answer is "worse than expected" we're no longer on speaking terms! Plus you're wrong!

The Causal Vacancy EXCEEDED expectations!!

In the United States the book sold 375,000 copies, and in the United Kingdom, 124,000 were sold. If lukewarm reviews can be ignored and the excitement can hold (and if it doesn't get banned in India), the publisher even thinks it'll be the bestselling hardback this year!

The fact that it had about a million pre-orders and extremely high expectations definitely helped, but it still couldn't top Dan Brown's The Lost Symbol, which landed 550,000 copies in one week.

Also, it topped USA Today’s best-seller list, kicking E.L. JamesFifty Shades of Grey right in the bondage ass! Ha!

Do U think it can hold this reign??

    I bought this book and it is AWFUL so far. It is so boring and I am struggling to get through the chapters, something exciting better happen fast. I think I was just played and helped a rich woman get even richer by buying this book!

    I bought this mostly because it's a JK Rowling novel, but it's HORRIBLE! She's trying too hard to prove she can write more than a children's series, but it just doesn't work.

    That book sucked, I read it last weekend. It was so dreary and dull, and none of the characters were likeable. And then it had a shitty non-ending, and I just wanted those hours of my life back. At least I got it from the library and didn't pay for it. She was definitely trying to hard, to many random sex references.
