Home Celebrity Nora Ephron’s Books Shoot into the Amazon Top 20, iBooks Charts

At least her family will know she’s appreciated: in the last few hours, most of Nora Ephron’s books have shot into the Amazon.com top 20 after being completely off the best seller lists. “Heartburn,” “I Remember Nothing,” “I Feel Bad About My Neck,” are all in top 20 paperbacks. “Wallflower at the Orgy” is number 100. The only one lagging behind is “Crazy Salad.” Otherwise, readers are literally scooping up the entire Ephron canon like crazy. Ephron was eulogized today at the AOL/PBS lunch for their new “Makers” series honoring Gloria Steinem, Tina Brown, Katie Couric, Arianna Stassinopolous, artist Faith Ringgold and other movers and shakers among women in media, the arts, and advertising. Barbara Walters spoke eloquently about Ephron and their monthly “Harpies” lunch that also included Liz Smith and Peggy Siegal. (She also joked that J. Fred Muggs, the chimp on the Today show in the 50s, was “gay but no one could discuss it.”) A clip was shown of Ephron being interviewed for the series. “When I first started directing, there were like three female directors,” she said, proudly. “Now there are maybe 40.” PS The books are also doing very well on Barnesandnoble.com. And on iTunes/iBooks, “Heartburn” is number 32, and “I Remember Nothing” is number 35, which is sort of amazing.
