Colin Powell, Michael Scott & Richard Ford Debut on the Indie Bestseller List

We’ve collected the books debuting on Indiebound’s Indie Bestseller List for the week ending May 27, 2012–a sneak peek at the books everybody will be talking about next month.

(Debuted at #3 in Hardcover Fiction) Canada by Richard Ford: “Then fifteen-year-old Dell Parsons’ parents rob a bank, his sense of normal life is forever altered. In an instant, this private cataclysm drives his life into before and after, a threshold that can never be uncrossed.” (May 2012)

(Debuted at #5 in Children’s Fiction Series) The Enchantress (Book Six in The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel series) by Michael Scott: ”Today the battle for Danu Talis will be won or lost. But will the twins of legend stand together? Or will they stand apart—one to save the world and one to destroy it?” (May 2012)

(Debuted at #6 in Hardcover Nonfiction) It Worked for Me: In Life and Leadership by Colin Powell & Tony Koltz: “A natural storyteller, Powell offers warm and engaging parables with wise advice on succeeding in the workplace and beyond. ‘Trust your people,’ he counsels as he delegates presidential briefing responsibilities to two junior State Department desk officers. ‘Do your best—someone is watching,’ he advises those just starting out, recalling his own teenage summer job mopping floors in a soda-bottling factory.” (May 2012)
