Hardcover Fiction
1. The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown
2. An Echo in the Bone by Diana Gabaldon

My Thoughts:
* Dan Brown: Three weeks at the top of the PW charts (and every other chart) and counting.
* Oprah Winfrey: Uwem Akpan thanks you.
* To check out a review of The Magician's Elephant, click on over to Eva's Book Addiction (a blog highlighted in this week's Weblog Love on Wednesdays feature)

Your Thoughts: Tell me in the comments if my initial prediction of four weeks at the top of the NY Times list for Dan Brown (this is number 2 on the NY Times list for him--even though I missed last week) was too short.

I didn't know there was a third book in the works. That's good news.
