NY Times Best-Sellers 31509

March 15, 2009

handle-with-care It didn’t take long for J.D. Robb to get knocked out of the top spot. After spending just one week at No.1, Robb’s latest mystery/romance, Promises in Death, drops down to No.3 on the chart, making way for Jodi Picoult’s Handle With Care. John Grisham held steady at No.2 with The Associate, a book that’s currently in my reading queue.

I’ve tried one Picoult novel before (Nineteen Minutes), but wasn’t overly impressed, so I don’t think I’ll be rushing out to buy the new one. At least not while it’s in hardcover, anyway!
