'Health'-y Sales

This week's best-sellers list

Only a few weeks to bikini season, so it’s perfectly fitting, so to speak, that books about bodily health (currently four of ‘em) are beginning to jostle aside those of a more spiritual bent. God’s not doing too shabbily, with two religion-oriented titles firmly grounded in the top 10, but let’s face facts: It’s a primer on antioxidants, cleansing fasts, and ”brisk forty-five-minute walks” — the follow-up to the good Dr. Weil’s best-seller Spontaneous Healing — that’s currently nibbling up the No. 1 spot, with a hardy 400,000 copies in print following five pressruns.
