Hinckley's Book Drops On Best Seller Lists
USA Today 30Mar00 A1

NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- President Gordon B. Hinckley's book "Standing for Something" dropped from the New York Times Book Review's Best Seller's list. The book had been listed #4 in the Advice, How-to and Miscellaneous category, a smaller category than the Fiction and Nonfiction categories where most books appear. In the Times' on-line version, the book simply dropped to #5, but that is enough to drop it from the print version of the list.

Meanwhile, the book has also dropped in other best-seller lists. On USA Today's list for March 30th, it has fallen to #45 from #40, and lists its sales rank at #89, down from as high as #28. Barnes &Noble's on-line ranking has it at #96.

The fall in rankings is normal, and still indicates that the book is selling well. Most books that hit the best seller lists are there only a few weeks before their sales fall to more reasonable levels that don't make the list. If the book's inventory is managed correctly, (an extremely difficult and tricky process) it could remain in print for several years after reaching the best seller list.
