#27: New York Times Bestsellers

so, for some reason, when i was making my 101 Things to do in 1001 Days" list, this list of books that have been #1 on the New York Times Bestseller list over the years didn't seem so intimidating. then i actually started looking at the list, and started coding it, and realized it's quite a bit larger than i thought... and i haven't read nearly as many of these books as i thought i had. so, here's the list. if anyone wants to help me accumulate the books to read, just let me know (thanks, Kristen!)
