The number of bestsellers for Nora Roberts so far this year (and considering that this is December it may be the final tally) is 14 paperbacks and two hardcovers. This week's mass market list has two new bestsellers—an original, Midnight Bayou, with an initial run from Jove of 2.3 million copies; and a reissue of a 1988 book by Bantam, Brazen Virtue, with total copies in print of about two million. She tops the trade paperback list with Dangerous from Harlequin (it combines three previous titles from the author's extensive oeuvre).
