ABS-CBN Publishing July Bestsellers
Sen. Miriam Defensor Santiago has done it again. Her second book, “Stupid is Forevermore” has repeated the success of “Stupid is Forever” as it soared to the number one spot only a month after its release nationwide, based on data from National Book Store.
In National Book Store’s July bestsellers, “Stupid is Forevermore” ranks first on the list of bestsellers in the Philippine publication category. The data is based on the number of copies that are sold in all National Book Store branches as well as online purchases made in National Book Store’s website (nationalbookstore.com.ph).
“Stupid is Forevermore,” which is packed with more jokes and witty lines from Santiago, has already sold over 100,000 copies in just a span of six weeks, seemingly replicating the success of “Stupid is Forever.” The first “Stupid” book has now sold over 400,000 copies since December 2014, making it the fastest-selling book of the previous year, according to ABS-CBN Publishing.
ABS-CBN Publishing is also the only publishing company with three books in the top five of National Book Store’s July bestsellers list in the Philippine publication category, making its books the most read for July.
Aside from “Stupid is Forevermore,” Georgina Wilson and Solenn Heusaff’s “Besties” and MOR DJ Chacha’s “Anak ng Patola! Mas Masakit Ate Chacha” rank third and fifth, respectively.
