NY Times Bestsellers 32909

March 29, 2009

handle-with-care The bestselling titles on the Hardcover Fiction list remained exactly the same this week, as Jodi Picoult’s novel Handle With Care is the No. 1 book in the country for the third consecutive week. I originally hadn’t planned on reading this one, but since it’s selling so well, I might give it a second look. Then again, I ought to know by now that I shouldn’t judge a book simply by its bestselling status. After all, I recently finished John Grisham’s Associate, which has been on the list for 8 weeks, and I found it to be a pretty boring affair.

At any rate, here’s a brief look at the NY Times Best-Sellers for 3/29/09:

  1. I haven’t read a Jodi Picoult book in awhile…it always seems that all of her stories have the same basic premise…just characters with different names.

  2. Hmm, sounds like John Grisham then 🙂 .

    Maybe I’ll wait until this one comes out in paperback!
