Paula Deen remains a book-selling machine.
Be it a show of support, gallows humor or, maybe, simple culinary interest, preorders of the beleaguered celeb chef's next cookbook, Paula Deen's New Testament: 250 Favorite Recipes, All Lightened Up, went through the roof this week, propelling it to the No. 1 spot on the Amazon Best Sellers list today.
The healthyish-living tome is due out Oct. 15, per the site, which also notes that the 448-page recipe collection has spent four days in Amazon's top 100. (Mind you, you can't get it yet. For months, even.)
