We’ve collected the books debuting on Indiebound’s Indie Bestseller List for the week ending March 23, 2014–a sneak peek at the books everybody will be talking about next month.
(Debuted at #3 in Hardcover Fiction) Missing You by Harlan Coben: “It’s a profile, like all the others on the online dating site. But as NYPD Detective Kat Donovan focuses on the accompanying picture, she feels her whole world explode, as emotions she’s ignored for decades come crashing down on her. Staring back at her is her ex-fiancé Jeff, the man who shattered her heart—and who she hasn’t seen in 18 years.” (March 2014)
(Debuted at #5 in Hardcover Fiction) Raising Steam by Terry Pratchett: “Steam is rising over Discworld, driven by Mister Simnel, the man with a flat cap and a sliding rule. He has produced a great clanging monster of a machine that harnesses the power of all of the elements—earth, air, fire, and water—and it’s soon drawing astonished crowds.” (March 2014)
(Debuted at #8 in Hardcover Nonfiction) The Story of the Jews by Simon Schama: “It is a story like no other: an epic of endurance against destruction, of creativity in oppression, joy amidst grief, the affirmation of life against the steepest of odds. It spans the millennia and the continents—from India to Andalusia and from the bazaars of Cairo to the streets of Oxford. ” (March 2014)
