NY Times Bestsellers for 42609

April 26, 2009

just-take-my-heart After a couple weeks of no movement at all, there has finally been a shake-up atop the New York Times Bestseller List — at least in the hardcover fiction category. Gone from the No. 1 spot is Harlan Coben’s Long Lost, which now sits at No. 4. Meanwhile, three brand-new titles now occupy the top three spots on the list, led by Just Take My Heart from Mary Higgins Clark.
