Carrie Fisher’s tell-all book about her time shooting the first “Star Wars” has been flying off the shelves since her death Tuesday.

On Wednesday, the 60-year-old actress’s book “The Princess Diarist” hit the top of Amazon’s list of best-selling books, according to a report in the Hollywood Reporter. But her latest book isn’t the only one that is selling. The top sellers also included Fisher’s book “Wishful Drinking” and “Postcards From the Edge.” (RELATED: Hollywood Mourns The News Of Carrie Fisher’s Death)

Our entire family thanks you for your thoughts and prayers.”  (RELATED: Hollywood Reacts To Devastating News Of Carrie Fisher’s Heart Attack)

Fisher’s mom, famed actress Debbie Reynolds, has also reacted to the news via Facebook.

“Thank you to everyone who has embraced the gifts and talents of my beloved and amazing daughter,” Reynolds wrote. “I am grateful for your thoughts and prayers that are now guiding her to her next stop. Love Carries Mother.”

Following news of Fisher’s death, former “Star Wars” co-stars and other celebrities who knew and worked with the actress shared their sadness.

“Carrie was one-of-a-kind…brilliant, original,” Harrison Ford wrote in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter. “Funny and emotionally fearless. She lived her life, bravely…My thoughts are with her daughter Billie, her Mother Debbie, her brother Todd, and her many friends. We will all miss her.”

“I have always stood in awe of Carrie,” director Steven Spielberg wrote. “Her observations always made me laugh and gasp at the same time. She didn’t need The Force. She was a force of nature, of loyalty and of friendship. I will miss her very much.”

“Carrie and I have been friends for most of our adult lives,” director George Lucas wrote in a statement to Variety. “She was extremely smart; a talented writer, actress and comedienne with a very colorful personality that everyone loved. In ‘Star Wars,’ she was our great and powerful princess –feisty, wise and full of hope in a role that was more difficult than most people might think. My heart and prayers are with Billie, Debbie and all Carrie’s family, friends and fans. She will be missed by all.”
