Glamour's newsstand single-copy sales in the first half of 2004 totaled 972,769 copies, up 9.2 percent from the year-ago period.


Glamour moves from ninth place to sixth among the top 545 titles selling on newsstands. Cosmopolitan sells 2 million at newsstands monthly, making it No. 1.

The New York publisher claimed it ended the first half of this year 7.3 percent over the rate base -- circulation guaranteed to advertisers -- equating to an average bonus circulation of 161,637 copies per issue.


The magazine said this represented the largest bonus circulation in its competitive set, which includes Cosmopolitan, InStyle, Marie Claire, Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, Allure, Elle, Lucky and Self.
