Hannibal: Enemy of Rome - a bestseller!

Post by parthianbow » Tue June 14th, 2011, 10:02 pm

I'm ecstatic to announce that only 4 days after its release, Hannibal: Enemy of Rome has entered the UK bestseller charts at No. 7!

Cue much celebration in the Kane household! :D

Alisha, you and I come from the underprivileged part of the world where this book is not yet available. Not that I am wasting away from bitterness about that or anything ...
