Bestsellers: Titles on National Lists Drop to Two

NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- The number of Mormon titles on US National bestseller lists have dropped to just two as Orson Scott Card's "Shadow of the Hegemon" dropped off the lists, and Martha Nibley Beck's "Finding Your Own North Star" hits a lull just before its release on the 20th. Beck's book is likely to return in the near future. The newly released paperback of President Gordon B. Hinckley's "Standing for Something" may also hit the lists as it gets distribution.

On the LDS list, Greg Olsen's "Expressions of Faith" jumped up to the top spot just above the Teachings of President Gordon B. Hinckley. New on the list is Anita Canfield's "By Small and Simple Things" and Mary Ellen Edmund's "Happiness: Finders, Keepers." The LDS list may see a significant changes in the next few weeks as the April General Conference effect changes what titles are purchased.

The current titles on US National bestseller lists are:
