Okay, I have nothing against Bill O’Reilly, but why on earth is his book in its eighth week in the top spot? Who is buying all these copies?!
ANYWAY, James Patterson’s latest, Confessions of a Murder Suspect, is also holding strong, and there’s one new entrant–an MG title–at no. 5. It’s called The Fire Chronicle by John Stephens.
