IN THE ‘ZONE’
Fresh from his runaway best-seller, The O’Reilly Factor, the Fox News anchor has more issues to flog. The No Spin Zone (620,000 copies in print after two pressruns) hits No. 3 this week. He may not spin, but O’Reilly, popping up on Good Morning America, The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, and Politically Incorrect, knows how to plug. Barbara Olson’s The Final Days makes its poignant mark at No. 4. The author, an impassioned critic of liberal politics, was a victim of the Sept. 11 tragedy. In fiction, mild-mannered Nora Roberts should watch her back: Patricia Cornwell and Anne Rice loom.
