Daisy Maryles, with Dick Donahue -- 11/10/97
There are weeks that we wish we could expand our list to 20 or 25, and this week was one of those times. There is a sizable group of hardcover bestseller has-beens and wannabes showing sales activity close to the books that did make it onto the lower rungs of PW's lists.

Parker (Putnam); Homecoming by Belva Plain (Delacorte); Wobegon Boy by Garrison Keillor (Viking); Reign in Hell by William Diehl (Ballantine); Only Love by Erich Segal (Putnam); The Case Has Altered by Martha Grimes (Holt); Toward the End of Time by John Updike (Knopf); and The Forgetting Room by Nick Bantock (HarperCollins).

In nonfiction, bestseller runners-up are: Forever Yours Faithfully by Lorrie Morgan and George Vecsey (Ballantine); Make the Connection by Bob Greene &Oprah Winfrey (Hyperion); Conversations with God, Book I by Neale Donald Walsch (Putnam); Wait Till Next Year by Doris Kearns Goodwin (Simon &Schuster); Dogs Never Lie About Love by Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson (Crown); O.J. The Last Word by Gerry Spence (St. Martin's); Rules II by Ellen Fein &Sherrie Schneider (Warner); Book by Whoopi Goldberg (Morrow/Weisbach); The Millionaire Next Door by Thomas J.
