When Palin broke the record last week for most weeks at #1 for a 2009 book, USA Today managed a mention of it noting the book was "going strong".
Palin, going strong: Sarah Palin's memoir, Going Rogue, is the first and only book of 2009 to remain at No. 1 on the list for five consecutive weeks. Three other titles —Dan Brown's The Lost Symbol, Glenn Beck's Common Sense and Stephenie Meyer's New Moon — held the No. 1 spot for four straight weeks earlier this year.
Congratulations, Governor Palin!
Barack Obama's The Audacity of Hope got as high as the #2 spot, but never got to #1. The Audacity of Hope was on the top 150 list for 96 weeks.
[Interesting that Glenn Beck has three books in the top 50: #14 Arguing with Idiots, #40 The Christmas Sweater, and #49 Glenn Beck's Common Sense.]
