The Secret is Still a Bestseller

According to a blog post from the Los Angeles Times Jacket Copy Blog, The Secret by Rhonda Byrne is approaching a benchmark of being on the L.A. Times bestseller list for 100 weeks.

The article said that the book was largely influenced by Wallace D. Wattles' 1910 book, The Science of Getting Rich. It was released in November 2006, but sales didn't really take off until Byrne appeared on the Oprah show.

Other titles that have been in the 100 plus club are: The Da Vinci Code, The Pillars of the Earth, and All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten.
