“World Without End (Ken Follett) had an impressive 24-week run on PW’s hardcover  fiction list-a tenure that few hardcovers achieve.  NAL Trade launched World in paper with a 600,000-copy printing.  Its hardcover success was buoyed by Oprah who picked its prequel, The Pillars of the Earth, as her 60th books club selection last November.  Pillars is Follett’s most successful book-it has been translated into 30 languages and has sold more than 14 million copies worldwide.”
