*books that are preordered

Divergent series seems to be the big winner this week for the e-books. With the release of the movie in March, I would expect the books to stay in the top 5 for a while. Sycamore Row is still doing well at the top list of NY Times and in the top 5 for Nook books.

There is a new book from Lisa Gardner coming out this week called Fear Nothing and should do well selling wise; Jayne Ann Krentz releases another romance novel called River Road for those looking for a good romantic read; and the latest KGI novel from Maya Banks After the Storm is coming out on Tuesday. The three books should all do ok but Gardner’s book is probably the only one that has a chance to crack one of the top 5 lists.
