Last week, we released an exclusive first look at Tim Ferriss’s The 4-Hour Chef to help the author fight the Barnes & Noble boycott. By the end of today, Tim’s BitTorrent Bundle will have been downloaded over 300,000 times. The book’s Amazon page will have received an additional 85,000 visitors. And users like you will have made history: the first BitTorrent bestseller.

Thanks in part to your support, The 4-Hour Chef will now be featured on all of the major bestseller lists: The New York TimesThe Wall Street JournalUSA Today, and Publisher’s Weekly.

It’s a big day for Tim. And it’s a big day for publishing. Unorthodox, iterative distribution just earned its place.

If you haven’t done so already, check out the BitTorrent Bundle for Part 1 of the book, interviews, photos and more. Or get the whole thing over at Amazon. Homemade Nutella recipe. Just saying.
