New to the USA Today (1/1/09) and NYT (1/11/09) Bestseller Lists

You have to go all the way to #57 before you find a new title on the USA Today bestseller list. The NYT lists also show little change, for the week that included Christmas Day. All that gift buying tends to focus on the tried and true.

The only new title on the NYT lists is Kelly Corrigan’s Middle Place. A video of the author reading from the book on You Tube has had over 1.8 million downloads (see next post, A Viral Hit).

The Vampire Diaries lands on the Children’s Series list for the first time, but earlier volumes have appeared on the Children’s Paperback list (see previous post, Bestselling YA Vampires).

The following are the new titles to the USA Today list:


#57 Breakthrough: Eight Steps to Wellness: Life-Altering Secrets from Today’s Cutting-Edge DoctorsSuzanne Somers, Crown
