NY Times Best-Sellers 32209

March 22, 2009

handle-with-care A new title cracked the top 5 on the New York Times Hardcover Fiction list, which is really the only one of these that I pay much attention to, and an older title made its way back in. While Jodi Picoult’s Handle With Care remained the No.1 fiction book in the country for a second week in a row, second place went to newcomer Corsair, a joint venture by Clive Cussler and Jack Du Brul. Stephanie Meyer’s non-“Twilight” series offering The Host, which has been on the list for a full 44 weeks, moved up to No.4 after being in sixth place last week.
