The Telegraph reports that the edition with the new cover "has sold more than 10,000 copies in Waterstone's booksellers stores since May, more than twice as many as the traditional Penguin Classics edition." While I don't have an opinion on Meyer's bestselling series (or at least not one I'm willing to state in public), I'm glad to see so many people discovering a very worthy classic.

Stephenie Meyer's Sells Wuthering Heights
Thanks to Stephenie Meyer's Twilight series, Emily Bronte's classic novel Wuthering Heights is enjoying a comeback.
