Nielson's Rating

This week’s best-sellers

Posted on

Dr. Jerri Nielsen’s harrowing account of treating her own breast cancer while trapped at the frigid South Pole debuts at No. 3. Sales for Ice Bound (225,000 copies in print after two pressruns) heated up after author appearances on Oprah, the Today show, Good Morning America, and PrimeTime Thursday. A cancer-free Nielsen is set to embark on a 15-city tour. From frost to fright, former Los Angeles Times crime reporter Michael Connelly lands at No. 2 on the fiction list with his thriller A Darkness More Than Night.
