At the end of its fourth week of release, the Beastie Boys book is still #3 on Amazon Kindle Store’s Hot New Releases in Pop Culture chart, and it’s the second-oldest release in the top 9! (We’re above Archie and the Big Lebowski, but behind food and Burning Man — BOO, ain’t nobody into eating no more!)
And we’re still top-ten on two of our other charts. So that’s 28 straight days in assorted top tens, and two straight weeks on the New Hotness chart. Thank you so much for reading. We <3 all o’ y’all, for real!
With a little help from our friends at Rolling Stone, 6623’s Beasties book is #1 on all three of its Amazon Kindle store charts! Get it here!
This is what it looks like:
We are certified New Hotness: Peter Relic & Dan LeRoy’s awesome new Beastie Boys book hit #1 on a fourth Amazon Kindle Store chart, Hot New Releases in Popular Culture.
I’m so proud of these guys. They really got some great stuff, and people are responding to it. Thank all o’ y’all!
Expect it in late August. Very late August. No, sorry, for an independent press our size, Amazon doesn’t have a pre-order option. Follow us on Twitter, and you’ll know as soon as it’s out.
Until then, did you know you can read the e-book on any smart phone, tablet, PC, or device that can run free Kindle software, which you can get here?
Recently, Beastie Boys book coauthor Dan LeRoy discussed his first book about Paul’s Boutique on the podcast New Books in Popular Music. Check it out here:
Dan’s first Beasties book is part of the prestigious 33 1/3 series from Bloomsbury Academic (formerly Continuum). Yup: Technically, it’s on the same label as Neil Gaiman. It’s one of the more popular and acclaimed editions in the series.
New Books in Popular Music is hosted by Greg Renoff, who is working on an amazing new book about Van Halen’s early years (for a different press, but that’s OK!). Get on his bandwagon now, cuz it’s gonna be rad.
"Haters gonna hate / Lovers gonna love / I don’t even want / None of the above…"
Not everybody loves the new book. We’re gonna have a severe talk to Mr. Relic and Lee-roy about their fancy-assed words, highbrow referencing, and ironic skateboarding.
