Love is all you need for a spot on this week’s best-seller chart, with E. Lynn Harris’ A Love of My Own opening big at No. 2 and Alice Sebold’s The Lovely Bones getting comfortable at No. 1. Now that Good Morning America’s book club has picked Bones, its No. 1 seat might stay warm indefinitely. In nonfiction, Among the Heroes’ No. 7 debut bodes well for the armfuls of Sept. 11 books appearing in the coming weeks.
