We’ve collected the books debuting on Indiebound’s Indie Bestseller List for the week ending April 12, 2012–a sneak peek at the books everybody will be talking about next month.
(Debuted at #1 in Hardcover Fiction) Sacré Bleu by Christopher Moore: “ In July 1890, Vincent van Gogh went into a cornfield and shot himself. Or did he? Why would an artist at the height of his creative powers attempt to take his own life . . . and then walk a mile to a doctor’s house for help? Who was the crooked little “color man” Vincent had claimed was stalking him across France?” (April 2012)
(Debuted at #1 in Paperback Fiction) Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James: “When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.”
