Two Saints books among Top 10 in hardcover nonfiction

As most regular visitors to this blog know, I’m a big fan of recommended reading lists. When you stop and think about it, one of the best recommended reading lists out there is updated and published every week: The Publishers Weekly Best-Sellers List.
This list is actually four separate lists, giving titles in four categories – hardcover fiction, hardcover nonfiction, mass market paperbacks and trade paperbacks. If I can remember to do so, I’ll try to publish these lists each week, hopefully on Sunday.
You really can’t go wrong with any of the books on this list. Their massive sales speak for themselves, and if they’re good enough to make this list, then they are probably well worth reading. Here’s this week’s list:
