There wasn’t much shuffle this week in the top lists with only a few books changing in the top 5. With the holidays just passing, we probably won’t get much of a change this week either. January might be able to bring some change in the lists.
1. Sycamore Row by John Grisham (9 weeks on the list)
2. The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt (9 weeks on the list)
3. The First Phone Call From Heaven by Mitch Albom (6 weeks on the list)
4. Command Authority by Tom Clancy (3 weeks on the list)
5. Cross my Heart by James Patterson (4 weeks on the list)
1. Divergent by Veronica Roth (2 weeks in top 5)
2. Naked in Death by J.D. Robb (1 week in top 5)
3. Insurgent by Veronica Roth (2 weeks in top 5)
4. Allegiant by Veronica Roth (1 week in top 5)
5. Sycamore Row by John Grisham (7 weeks in top 5)
Barnes and Noble (Nook)
1. Never Go Back (Jack Reacher #18) by Lee Child (1 week in top 5)
2. Sycamore Row by John Grisham (2 weeks in top 5)
3. Divergent by Veronica Roth (2 weeks in top 5)
4. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak (1 week in top 5)
5. Innocence by Dean Koontz (1 week in top 5)
Once again, Sycamore Row is the only book that is on all three lists, so it would be the overall winner, but Veronica Roth would be the winner for the e-books. Her three books have remained in the top 5 for Amazon most of the week and Divergent was in the top 5 for Kindle and Nook books.
There is only one major book coming out this week. It’s a political thriller from Jack Higgins called The Death Trade. This book might be able to get on the NY Times list, but I doubt it will be a high selling e-book seller.
