Ellen Hopkins’ latest enters top ten list

I don’t even know what to say … don’t get me wrong, I’m glad readers are eating up history, but Bill O’Reilly’s latest, Lincoln’s Last Days, is in its fourth week in the top spot. O_o In the second spot is Justin Bieber: Just Getting Started. (Really?!) Happily, in the third spot is the latest from the talented Ellen Hopkins, Tilt.
