Bestsellers: Standing for Something to be Released

NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- President Gordon B. Hinckley's book "Standing for Something" will be released in paperback next week, and may hit some bestseller lists in the coming weeks. But on the current national bestseller lists, the Mormon-related titles stayed basically the same, with Anne Perry's "Whitechapel Conspiracy" dropping off the lists, and the forthcoming book by Martha Nibley Beck, which will also be released next week, staying on the "Tomorrow's Bestseller" list.

On the LDS list, several titles were added, including Greg Olsen's "Expressions of Faith" and a new edition of Leonard Arrington and Susan Arrington Madsen's "Mothers of the Prophets."

The current titles on US National bestseller lists are:
