So many books are labeled "#1 on the New York Times Bestsellers List" that I wonder if the tag confers any real merit upon the book in question at all.

Many bookstores discount NYT bestsellers, which increases the sales of those books, which means they will spend more time on the NYT besteller list, which means that their price will be discounted...
I just wish there was more of a way to rotate different books through those lists, so that we don't keep seeing Tuesdays with Morrie and The World is Flat and Obama's latest book week after week after week.
I've got a feeling that there are a lot of good books just outside the bestseller lists that could use a good boost of publicity and price discounting.

What are the elements or ingredients in the writings of John Grisham, James Patterson, Nora Robert and Stephen King that make their novels bestsellers?
Others try to imitate them by producing legal thrillers, romance and horror but their books are not as popular as the above authors. What makes their books sell?

What current novel is considered literature & at the same time is a New York Times or National bestseller?
Does The Memory Keeper Daughter falls under this category.
Some says that a bestseller that is also literature is called mainstream. Is that correct?

List the 3 books you will read, and why.
I have been thinking of why reading bestsellers are better than reading published but not prize winning books.
Personally I have read nboth types, but I just want your opinion.

I am writing a report on the subject "Bestsellers - do they have any literary quality?". So any help on this topic would be great. If you know any good website, that would be great too.

I thought bestseller lists were actually ranked by number of books sold...? I am looking for a ranked list of actual numbers of books sold for 2009.
