The Way Back Machine – Best Sellers 2007

Seven years isn’t such a long journey in the Way Back Machine. In fact, I’ll bet a few of us can’t even believe that it’s been that long since:

  • Anna Nicole Smith died. (February)
  • The first iPhone went on sale. (June)
  • Marion Jones admitted to doping and surrendered her Olympic medals. (October)

A number of the authors on the New York Times Best Sellers list for the week of May 6, 2007 are ones who are still favorites today – and were considered favorites then. The more things change…
