Stephenie Meyer, vampires and sales

Todd pointed me to this - Stephenie Meyer's books sold over 1,000,000 units last week - in a universe of 17,000,000 total sales. Amazing - add the Anne Rice vampire books, Bram Stoker and who knows what all, you have a great chunk of what book buyers are willing to trade cold, hard cash for. All put into perspective by this great article from Atlantic Monthly.
