Mindy madness: Turns out everybody wants to hang out with Mindy Kaling’s new book, Why Not Me? The star of The Mindy Project lands at No. 4 with her new collection of personal essays. That’s a sizeable bump from her first best seller, Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (and Other Concerns), which peaked at No. 31 in 2011. (The full list will publish on Thursday.)
It was a good week for Kaling: Why Not Me? (Crown Archetype) was released on Sept. 15, the same day her TV show returned for a new season, this time on Hulu. And she’s been on a national book tour that’s drawing big crowds.
