My Five Most-Wanted Fake Books

In a recent plotline for ABC's soap All My Children, the character Kendall Hart wrote a book called Charm! It was concurrently released in real-life bookstores (with Hart's name and photo on the cover, since the real author is being kept a secret). It went on to score the 13th slot on the New York Times best-seller list. Ridiculous? That's what I thought. Here are a few other titles we'd like to see from characters with a story to tell.
