International bestseller lists, and don't you forget about Ice Time by Jay Atkinson, and How to Live by Sarah Bakewell.
A recent column from Publishers Weekly gave a quick overview of some bestseller lists from other countries (France, Sweden, and Italy). In addition to crime fiction and political memoirs, coloring books are selling well around the world! Some of the titles we mention:
Ice Time by Jay Atkinson is a wonderful look at small town life in general, and a high school hockey team in general. It's a sports book that even I (Michael) loved.
How to Live by Sarah Bakewell is a book that Ann read and loved a few years ago, and is now revisiting it on audio (narrated by Davina Porter) in preparation for reading the essays of Michel de Montaigne, the subject of Bakewell's book.
