Lengthen book lists

Are you kidding me? Two Sundays in a row, April 14 and April 21, your best sellers book lists have been reduced to two and three respectfully in fiction and nonfiction. Do you realize that there are a great number of press readers who keep track of the national bestsellers to buy, read and discuss?

Is 10 in each category too much to ask? And while we’re at it, could a third and separate category be added for the self-help, diet, marriage-saving, spiritual guidance et al. genre? They belong in a category of their own and do not fill my bill as nonfiction (although literally they are, I guess).

Please go back to printing 10 books in each list so we readers can be informed as to what is recommended reading.
