I hope to read all the books that make the New York Times Children’s Paperbook Best Seller List for at least 2 weeks.
I use the 2 week rule cause I feel that some books can make it to the top due to manipulation of sales but they cannot stay a 2nd week unless they have great sales.
Of course the other reason is that I don’t have time to read every book that makes it to the top.
PS. The number of weeks shown is the number of weeks the book had been on the best seller list when it last hit top spot, not the number of weeks it was at the top spot.
