ABSTRACT
This article presents information on some of paperback nonfiction in 2004. Random House's top paperback nonfiction title, Azar Nafisi's Reading Lolita in Tehran happened to fit both criteria. Published in late 2003, the book has led the paperback fiction list for an impressive 28 weeks and has been on the list for 53 weeks making it the category leader. Erik Larson's true crime title, The Devil In The White City, was its second-best title for the year, earning the No. 1 spot for two weeks and remaining on the list for the bulk of 2004. Seabiscuit by Laura Hillenbrand, published by the Ballantine imprint, also had the No. 1 spot for two weeks. Time Warner is the No.5 publisher in BPR's analysis, with 7 titles on the paperback list for 69 weeks.
