USA Today Bestseller List, Week Ending April 8, 2007
Leanne Banks continues her appearance on the bestseller list due to her wagon being tied to the tail of Evanovich’s star. Rhonda Byrne’s unshakeable book, The Secret, remains at the number 1 spot.
There were few debut titles on the list despite April 3 being a big release date. Possibly some of those April releases will turn up on next week’s list. A review of the titles which dominate would be historicals (5), suspense(6), and paranormals(7).
Hot Stuff, Janet Evanovich, Leanne Banks, St. Martin’s Paperbacks, $7.99, No. 4 (debut). The selling power of the Evanovich name is amazing. I found the first two in this collaborative series unforgettable and have never went back for more.
