How Colleen Hoover Rose to Rule the Book Best-Seller List

From a New York Times story by Alexandra Alter headlined “How Colleen Hoover Rose to Rule the Best-Seller List”:

Colleen Hoover has sold more books this year than Dr. Seuss. She’s sold more books than James Patterson and John Grisham — combined.

To say she’s currently the best-selling novelist in the United States, to even compare her to other successful authors who have landed several books on the best seller lists, fails to capture the size and loyalty of her audience.
