My Thoughts:
* Dan Brown: Third week at the top of the charts. Only one more week for my prediction. Come on, publishers, get me something new!
* I'm impressed by John Grisham's ability to stay at the top of the Mass Market list for two weeks. That list moves and shakes so much, that two weeks is a testimony to Grisham's mass appeal.

Your Thoughts: Any predictions about what might be able to topple Brown from his throne?
