Five New Books Break the College Bestseller List

the_lost_symbol-1.jpgThe Chronicle of Higher Education just released their top ten college bestsellers list, and five new books have grabbed spots on the reading lists of a coveted demographic. Nevertheless, Dan Brown held his coveted spot at the top of the list with “The Lost Symbol.”

The five new books are: Superfreakonomics by Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner; Eclipse by Stephenie Meyer, Precious by Sapphire; What the Dog Saw: And Other Adventures by Malcolm Gladwell; and The Gathering Storm by Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson.
