    John Hein, Gary, Sperm68 - It's the Power of Stern!


    Joan Rivers' books have seen a major surge in sales in the wake of the late comedian's unexpected passing Thursday.
    The 81-year-old comedian, who died one week after suffering cardiac arrest during an outpatient medical procedure, wrote 12 books in her decades-long career, and her most recent book has catapulted back onto Amazon's bestsellers’ list.
    “Diary of A Mad Diva,” which was released in July, topped Amazon’s “Movers & Shakers” list Friday. The list “identifies the biggest gainers in sales rank compared to twenty-four hours ago.”

    The hardcover edition of “Diva” experienced a stunning 64,200 percent spike in sales, which propelled the book from 1,286 to No. 2 on the online retailer’s bestsellers list.

    I guess Robin and Lisa G should go in for some throat surgery.

    "Robin it was a great career move. I'd almost like to see by how much "Oh My Dog" sales would spike if something went amiss on Beth's next trip to her grandmama's"

    No, death won't sell one book, unless they buried her in them instead of dirt
