Back in June 2001, we bid farewell to Tuesdays with Morrie after a 183-week run on the hardcover bestseller charts. We were a bit premature—the Doubleday book by Mitch Albom was back on the list for an additional 12 weeks after the TV movie based on the book re-aired following the death of its star, Jack Lemmon. The book has more than 5.6 million copies in print after 106 trips to press. A Broadway trade paperback debuted this month with a 386,000 first printing. A play based on the book will open November 19 at the Minetta Lane Theater in New York City.
