It’s a screenshot worth framing and hanging, at least if you work for Wizards of the Coast.  For the second day in a row, the Dungeons & Dragons Player’s Handbook is topping not only Amazon’s Science Fiction & Fantasy category, but is #1 overall in book sales, beating out such other essential back-to-school fare as The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual Disorders, 5th Edition, and To Kill a Mockingbird.
The Player’s Handbook, which released to WPN retailers earlier this month (see “Rolling for Initiative--'Dungeons & Dragons' Back, With Authority”) and then saw a Gen Con premiere, went into wide release yesterday.  Sales have been “scary good” on the new D&D releases across channels, according to a WotC executive (see “Business as Usual at Gen Con”).
