NYT Nonfiction Bestseller Debuts, 5/3

It had to happen at some point; after 29 weeks, Dewey slips off the main NYT list, to #23 the extended list. It’s still going strong on the Indie list, however, where it’s at #8 after 31 weeks.

The celebrity memoir is definitely back; several new titles join those already on the list; it looks like celebrityhood is a recession-proof business. Can Monica Seles’s Getting a Grip (excerpted in the WSJ today) be far behind?
