The steamy memoir by former New Jersey governor James E. McGreevey, who left office amid a gay sex scandal, has become a best seller on two lists. Released September 19, The Confession will be ranked number 3 in nonfiction hardcover sales in The New York Times book review in the October 8 issue, the newspaper said. The review does not disclose sales figures. The book ranked number 1 in biography-autobiography and number 4 in adult nonfiction based on first-week sales of 15,000, recorded by Nielsen BookScan U.S., The Star-Ledger of Newark, N.J., reported in Thursday's newspapers. McGreevey, who had largely avoided public statements since leaving office in 2004, promoted the book with several television appearances last week, including a taped interview on The Oprah Winfrey Show. McGreevey, elected New Jersey governor in 2001, stunned the nation when he announced in August 2004 that he was a ''gay American'' and would leave office three months later. (AP)
