Nottingham Cook Book is now the number one best-seller in Waterstones Nottingham
Outselling Jamie’s Comfort Food, Guy Martin’s My Autobiography, Boris Johnson’s The Churchill Factor and Zoella Girl Online, The Nottingham Cook Book has quickly become the city’s best-selling book since its publication at the end of November.
In just over a fortnight since its release many stockists, which include all of the businesses featured in the book, have had to re-stock after sell-outs. The Nottingham Tourism Centre has had particularly positive feedback.
Erin Huckle, PR Manager at Experience Nottinghamshire said: “To keep up with demand we’ve placed a second order and potentially will need to do a third. It has been really popular and we think it will remain so beyond Christmas and all year round. It’s a great piece of Nottingham merchandise and the fact that people have been buying it from outside of Nottingham is a testimony to how good the book is”.
Anthony Cooper, buyer at Waterstones said: “The Nottingham Cook Book is selling three times more than the latest Jamie Oliver book, which is the best-selling cook book in the country at the moment. It is also doing better than Zoella Girl Online, which is the UK’s overall best-seller and record breaker for fastest selling debut”.
