Last week’s books releases saw two blockbusters going head to head: George W. Bush’s memoir, Decision Points, and Wimpy Kid #5: The Ugly Truth. In the end, it was no contest: Wimpy Kid outsold Dubya 2 to 1, the Washington Post reports. Jeff Kinney’s confused middle-schooler sold nearly 375,000 copies in one day.
And yes, we know that Wimpy Kid isn’t really a comic book, but you know what we say — don’t distance yourself from success!
