Thanks to Billie out in Oregon, we have merry happy news in the World of Bosoms:

If you go to the Powell’s Romance page with their top ten list, behold, what wondrous sights should appear?

Beyond Heaving Bosoms is #1!!!!! Commence Snoopy Dance!! Screen cap? Of course!

On top of Twilight? Now that is HILARIOUS. Thank you to everyone who shopped at Powell’s and embraced the Bosoms.

    Hells to yea muthafuckahs!!!  In your face, Cullen scum!  After much waffling, I decided, what the hell, I’ll buy a copy from Powell’s (I seriously never buy new books, but this looks so amazing, I can’t wait for people to sell their torn copies elsewhere!)

    I didn’t buy from powells, but I was able to snag a copy in the “humor” section of Books-a-million here in Gainesville, Fl.  I would have loved to have gotten a picture but, alas, my phone camera is dead.  Congrats on kicking some Twilight butt!!!

    @Andieg:  are you for serious?  If I’d known, I woulda just bought it there for instant gratification!  Ah, well, probably the cost would have been about the same.  Probably.  :consoles self:

    Sensational news and well deserved.
    I’m hoping my copy arrives in my mail box today.

    Sonic – It’s true.  Neither Borders nor Barnes & Nobels had it, so I really didn’t think B-a-M would either, but they had about 4-5 copies.  I had to ask the salesclerk where to find it, of course!  I can say honestly it was all flavors of awesome, and I’m sure you’ll enjoy it once your copy arrives. 
    And the Bosoms shall inherit the Earth!!

    FYI you are also #16 under Social Sciences on the Sony eBookstore.

    If you see what is above (Malcolm Gladwell, Thomas Friedman), I’d say that’s pretty damn good.

    …and somehow seeing intelligent, humorous commentary/study sittin’ on top of Twilight means something is right in the world, and my mood is lifted just a teensy bit.

    Doesn’t surprise me. Not only is the humor exactly up Portland’s… alley, the Powells rep seemed verra taken with the whole concept of heaving body parts when Candy did her talk there.

    I was in the airport in Portland on a layover, and Powell’s was the ONLY place (thanks Barnes and Noble and Borders of D.C., VA, and MD) I could find the Bosoms.  Alas, my sister had sent it to me the day before from Amazon for my birthday present, so I didn’t buy it.  I left it for another lucky shopper.  Congrats- and the Bosoms are now on vacation with me in Hawaii.
