USA Today Bestseller List, Week Ending January 28, 2007

There were only a few new books appearing on the list, the notable one being Patricia Brigg’s Blood Bound.

Forever in Blue: The Fourth Summer of the Sisterhood, Ann Brashares (Delacorte Books for Young Readers), $18.99, No. 2 (Peak 2) Still at No. 2.
Plum Lovin’, Janet Evanovich, (St. Martin’s Press), $16.95 No. 5, (Peak 1)Le sigh. This type of sales only serves to encourage the publication of the novella in hardcover form.
Point Blank, Catherine Coulter (Jove), $7.99, No.9, (Peak 3)
Gone, Lisa Gardner (Bantam), $7.99, No. 11, (Peak 7)

Slow Burn, Julie Garwood (Ballantine Books), $7.99, No. 16, (Peak 5)
White Lies, Jayne Ann Krentz (Putnam), $24.95, No. 18 This low ranking shocked me. I expected JAK’s book to be at the top, but then I acknowledge not having bought it yet. I am hoping it shows up at Costco.
Sun Kissed, Catherine Anderson (Signet), $7.99, No. 22, (Peak 11)

Blood Bound, Patricia Briggs (Ace), $7.99, No. 35 I think this is particularly impressive given that this book had no official lay down date.

A Little Bit Wicked, Victoria Alexander (Avon), $6.99, No. 65, (Peak 19)
Be My Valentine, Debbie Macomber (Mira), $7.99, No. 78, (Peak 14)

Irish Hearts, Nora Roberts (Silhouette Special Releases), $14.95, 84 (Peak 1).
The Boleyn Inheritance, Philippa Gregory (Touchstone), $25.95, No. 88, (Peak 36)
Valley of Silence, Nora Roberts (Jove), $7.99, No. 90, (Peak 2)
Shadow Dance, Julie Garwood (Ballantine Books), No. 96, (Peak 13)

The Constant Princess, Philippa Gregory (Touchstone), $16.00, No. 117, (Peak 56)
Twilight, Stephenie Meyer (Little, Brown), $8.99, No. 118, (Peak 75)
New Moon, Stephenie Meyer (Little Brown for Young Readers), $17.99, No. 130, (Peak 39)
McKettrick’s Luck, Linda Lael Miller (HQN), $7.99, No. 141
Dance of the Gods, Nora Roberts (Jove), $7.99, No. 145, (Peak 2)

My Nerdy Valentine, Vicki Lewis Thompson (St. Martin’s Paperbacks), $6.99, No. 137 (Peak 85)
Ready for Love, Debbie Macomber (Mira), $7.50, No. 138 (Peak 138)

    There is an announcement on Running With Quills that JAK’s White Lies will be #4 on the NY Times best seller list. I bought my copy but haven’t started it yet. I need a big block of free time.
