THE SEASON'S BESTSELLERS


The Christmas season is a big season for book publishers. You’ll see more big books this time of the year and it’s a great time to look at them as gifts. Here’s a list of this week’s bestsellers:

The number one nonfiction book is A Promised Land by Barack Obama. This is volume one of his presidential memoirs. In it he offers personal reflections on his formative years and pivotal moments through his first term.  

Also new, and more my speed, is Dolly Parton, Songteller. This country music icon shares insights on 175 of her songs. I have a soft spot for Dolly because she has done so much for children through her Imagination Library. 

Popular actor, Michael J Fox ‘s latest is No Time Like the Future. He discusses the challenges he has faced with Parkinson’s disease and other setbacks that caused him to reassess his outlook on life. 

Oklahoma cooking star, Ree Drummond’s new book is Frontier Follies. Instead of a book filled with mouthwatering recipes, Drummond shares stories on marriage and motherhood. 

Topping the list in fiction this week is Rhythm of War by Brandon Sanderson. This is the fourth book in his Stormlight Archives series. In this one, technological discoveries and an ensuing arms race change how a war is fought.

Also on top is David Baldacci’s Daylight. We already have a waiting list for this bestseller. FBI agent Alice Pine’s search for her twin sister overlaps with a military investigator’s hunt for someone involved in a global conspiracy.

Marc Cameron’s newest is Tom Clancy: Shadow of the Dragon. A missing scientist, strange noises under the Arctic ice and a mole who infiltrated American intelligence bedevil President Jack Ryan.

Mary Higgins Clark and Alafair Burke are back with Piece of My Heart. As their wedding approaches, a television producer and her fiancée must search for his missing seven-year-old nephew. 

This week’s final bestseller is Marauder by Clive Cussler and Boyd Morrison. This is the fifteenth book in the Oregon Files series. A billionaire’s dying wish bestows a paralyzing chemical to a terrorist group. 

I am deep into my relationship with Armand Gamache in Louise Penny’s brilliant series. I tried to put a stop to this addiction, but decided I would after I get through the latest, number 16. Currently I’m in the middle of number 12, The Nature of the Beast and it does not disappoint. 

Everyone is so busy, but I hope you can find a time to sit with a hot cup of tea and a good book and enjoy this best of all seasons. Happy reading!
