NY Times Bestsellers

Its been barely two weeks and already A Mercy has hit the #5 spot on the NY Times Hardcover Bestseller list. Yay!

The Secret Life of Bees is also thriving well as #2 on the Paperback Trade fiction for 22 weeks, as is Water For Elephants holding steady at #10 for 63 weeks.

I am not surprised to see the Sookie Stackhouse books hogging the top 20 spots for the Mass-Market paperback section. The TV show has revitalized the series it seems. 3 of my friends are currently making their way through the series, and I was lucky enough to be able to borrow the entire series from a friend, so now I don’t have to wait for weeks to get the books from the library. yay!

It was my goal to read 100 books before the end of the year. I am very, very close with 89 books under my belt since the end of January when I first started this blog. Along the way, I’ve met some fantastic people in the blog world, other reviewers, the wonderful people who sit through my posts and the great big world of bibliophiles I near forgot existed. =)
