MORE DINOSAUR MANIA

Posted on

Are people sick and tired of dinosaurs yet? Apparently not. Jurassic Park is set to become one of the highest-grossing movies of all time. Buoyed by the film, the novel is once again No. 1 on the mass-market paperback list, with over 7 million copies in print. And now The Making of Jurassic Park is creeping up the trade-paperback list, too (it’s at No. 4 this week). But there’s another book riding movie coattails-Virginia Woolf’s Orlando, a trade paperback at No. 12. FICTION WEEKS ON LIST
