Paula Deen Surges Past 'Game of Thrones' to Top Spot on Amazon

Not due on shelves until Oct. 15, the book from the embattled cooking star is one of two in the Top 10.

Amazon's Best Sellers - H 2013


Paula Deen's forthcoming cookbook, Paula Deen's New Testament, has surged past best-sellers by the likes of Dan Brown, Stephen King and Game of Thrones writer George R.R. Martin to take the top spot on Amazon's sales charts.

The book charted in the 1,500s on Monday and by Wednesday it was at No. 18.

The Southern TV cook has faced widespread outrage and dwindling endorsement deals since a deposition was released last week in which she admitted to using a racial slur for African-Americans in the past, and discussed her wish to mount a "true Southern plantation-style" wedding.

Scheduled to hit shelves on Oct. 15, the book is Deen's first with Random House. Another Deen cookbook, 2011's Paula Deen's Southern Cooking Bible, currently resides at No. 7 on the best-sellers list.

In addition, five of the Top 10 books on the Amazon's movers and shakers list of books that have jumped the most in the past 24 hours are Deen-related.

People are showing what they think with their dollars. Too bad they do not do this more with all aspects of life.

Fattening food is of interest to many people in this country- you have to provide people with an "interest to them" before they'll spend money.

Fat laden food is clearly an interest to many in the US- look around.
