The number of companies that want to be associated with Paula Deen continues to fall, but it turns out a lot of people still want to cook like her.

The controversial chef's upcoming book -- "Paula Deen's New Testament: 250 Favorite Recipes, All Lightened Up" -- rocketed into the top five on's Best Sellers list Wednesday, and also cracked the Top 40 on Barnes & Noble's Top 100. The book isn't scheduled to hit shelves until October 15th, and despite the recent scandal, it appears that's still the plan.

Stuart Applebaum, a spokesman for Deen's publishing company Random House, Inc., tells E! News the book "remains on course for its fall publication." But Applebaum also notes that Random House is "monitoring the situation closely."
