We’ve collected the books debuting on Indiebound’s Indie Bestseller List for the week ending August 24, 2014–a sneak peek at the books everybody will be talking about next month.
(Debuted at #5 in Hardcover Fiction) Adultery by Paulo Coelho: “Linda knows she’s lucky. Yet every morning when she opens her eyes to a so-called new day, she feels like closing them again. Her friends recommend medication. But Linda wants to feel more, not less.” (August 2014)
(Debuted at #6 in Hardcover Nonfiction) The Organized Mind by Daniel J. Levitin: “The information age is drowning us with an unprecedented deluge of data. At the same time, we’re expected to make more—and faster—decisions about our lives than ever before. No wonder, then, that the average American reports frequently losing car keys or reading glasses, missing appointments, and feeling worn out by the effort required just to keep up.” (August 2014)
(Debuted at #7 in Children’s Interest) Percy Jackson’s Greek Gods written by Rick Riordan & illustrated by John Rocco: “Who could tell the origin stories of the gods of Olympus better than a modern-day demigod? Percy Jackson provides an insider’s view with plenty of ‘tude in this illustrated collection.” (August 2014)
