Glenn Beck's Common Sense Reaches #1 On Both USA Today And New York Times Bestseller Lists, Surpassing One Million Copies In Print In Just One Week
New York, NY (June 29th, 2009) - Louise Burke, EVP and Publisher of Threshold Editions, announced today that after seven printings GLENN BECK'S COMMON SENSE: The Case Against an Out-of-Control Government, Inspired by Thomas Paine currently has 1.2 million copies in print. Published on June 16th, GLENN BECK'S COMMON SENSE is currently #1 on the USA Today bestseller list and will hit #1 on the July 5th New York Times bestseller list, making Beck one of a few authors in history to hit #1 on the New York Times fiction, non-fiction and paperback original bestseller lists. GLENN BECK'S COMMON SENSE is joined on the NYT paperback non-fiction bestseller list by Beck's AN INCONVENIENT BOOK at #4, giving him two books in the top 5.
Common Sense is the first book title released under Beck's recently announced groundbreaking partnership with Simon and Schuster to publish a wide range of fiction and non-fiction books for all age groups. His next book, the hardcover non-fiction ARGUING WITH IDIOTS, will be published by Threshold Editions later this year.
Nearly two and a half centuries after Thomas Paine changed the course of history, Glenn Beck revisits Paine's powerful treatise with one purpose: to galvanize Americans to see past government's easy solutions, two part monopoly, and illogical methods and take back our great country.
