NY Times Bestsellers for 53109

May 31, 2009

hf-gone-tomorrow Another week, another new release at the top of the New York Times Bestseller List in the Hardcover Fiction category. This time around, it’s Lee Child claiming the top spot with a book called Gone Tomorrow. I’ve never heard of this author before, and the plot — something about a conspiracy dating back to the Soviets invading Afghanistan — doesn’t sound like anything I’d be interested in, so I’ll just let others review this one!

Last week’s No. 1, Wicked Prey by John Sanford, slipped down to the second spot, with the rest of the top 5 being a mere reshuffling of the same titles from a week ago.
