'Standing for Something' Joins Another Bestseller List
(Publishers Weekly Hardcover Non-Fiction Bestsellers)
Excite News (Reuters) 17Mar00 A1

NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- President Gordon B. Hinckley's book "Standing for Something" remained at #4 in the Advice, How-to, and Miscellaneous category of the New York Times Book Review's Best Seller's list and also appeared on the Publishers Weekly bestseller list. In addition, it has seen an upsurge in sales on that placed it at #28 in its sales ranking last week.

However, the book continued to fall on USA Today's list, dropping from number 42 to 49. But it joined the Publishers Weekly list last week at #12 and has now advanced to #11 in its General/Nonfiction category. Like the New York Times Book Review's list, Publishers Weekly divides its list into Fiction and Nonfiction and separates paperbacks into a separate list. However, unlike the New York Times, Publishers Weekly doesn't include a separate 'Miscellaneous' category, and it has included President Hinckley's book in the main Nonfiction category.

The appearance of a book on bestseller lists can increase sales, and may account for the better ranking this week on And the Publishers Weekly list is important because of the audience it reaches. Publishers Weekly is the most important trade publication for the book publishing industry. It is read by booksellers, who often base buying decisions on the magazine. An appearance on the PW best seller list may lead booksellers who haven't yet stocked the title to order and get the book into their stores.
