In Felicia Day’s new book, she tells us You’re Never Weird On The Internet (Almost), but an alternate title for the book could be You’re A Bestseller On The Internet (Sometimes). Day released her new memoir on August 11th, and it immediately became one of the 100 best-selling books on Amazon.
As with many of the other books authored by online video stars, You’re Never Weird is personal recollection that follows Day’s life so far. It begins with her upbringing as a “lonely homeschooled girl” and tells readers how she became “queen of the geeks,” according to its Amazon description. It’s a “rags-to-riches” tale that Day’s many fans (she has nearly two-and-a-half million followers on Twitter) will surely relish.
Many of those fans have already powered the book’s strong post-release push. At the time of this post, You’re Never Weird sits in 57th place on Amazon’s bestseller list. It also made an appearance as one of the site’s “Hot New Releases,” where Day appears next to the likes of Dr. Seuss and Harper Lee.
