It turns out that Hyrule isn't the only place Link can dominate.

The New York Times yesterday published its list of best-selling books for the week. Sitting atop the "Hardcover Advice & Misc." list is none other than "The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Historia," the book published last month by Dark Horse Books and Nintendo.

The title, which is described as "containing an unparalleled collection of historical information" on the famed franchise, is authored by Akria Himekawa. Zelda creator Shigeru Miyamoto and the franchise's current steward, Eiji Aonuma, are also given author nods.

"The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Historia" beat out a host of prominent titles in its first week on the list, including "Shred: The Revolutionary Diet," which came in second place. "Rebooting Work" hit the list for the first time and landed in third place.

"The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Historia" is currently sold out at Amazon, but is expected to be back in the store on Friday. The title is priced at $34.99, but customers can order it from Amazon for $19.24.
