The D&D 4th Edition Player's Handbook is # 4 on the Wall Street Journal Non-Fiction Best Seller List
The 4e books also hit the USA Today List:
PHB is also #47 on USA Today Top 150 (mix of all fiction, non-fiction, hardcover, paperback, etc)
DMG is #128
MM is #143
Gift Set is #148
The single books would be higher on the list if they factored in that the Gift set contains one of each.
As a point of comparison, the 3.5 PHB hit the USA Today list for 2 weeks, peaking at #57.
The 3.5 DMG was on the list for one week, at #92
The 3.5 MM was on the list for one week, at #112
Strangely I can't find the 3.0 history on the list.
We should hear soon if we hit the NYT BSL.
