koo2We’ve collected the books debuting on Indiebound’s Indie Bestseller List for the week ending March 06, 2014–a sneak peek at the books everybody will be talking about next month.

(Debuted at #3 in Hardcover Fiction) Bark: Stories by Lorrie Moore: “These eight masterly stories reveal Lorrie Moore at her most mature and in a perfect configuration of craft, mind, and bewitched spirit, as she explores the passage of time and summons up its inevitable sorrows and hilarious pitfalls to reveal her own exquisite, singular wisdom.” (February 2014)

(Debuted at #3 in Hardcover Nonfiction) The Future of the Mind by Michio Kaku: “For the first time in history, the secrets of the living brain are being revealed by a battery of high tech brain scans devised by physicists.

Recording memories, telepathy, videotaping our dreams, mind control, avatars, and telekinesis are not only possible; they already exist. ” (February 2014)

(Debuted at #15 in Children’s Illustrated) Hi, Koo!: A Year of Seasons by Jon J Muth: “With a featherlight touch and disarming charm, Jon J Muth — and his delightful little panda bear, Koo — challenge readers to stretch their minds and imaginations with twenty-six haikus about the four seasons.” (February 2014)
