The New York Times Top 15 Best Sellers for the week ending Feb 3rd, 2013!
Welcome! Posted by NOON (or sometimes sooner EVERY Sunday!) Another Sunday of books has arrived! Let's see what they are! Then, leave a comment below and tell us "WHAT ARE YOU READING?"! Let's get MORE interaction here, please! I'd LOVE to see some comments!
FICTION: COMBINED PRINT AND EBOOK
1. Safe Haven by +Nicholas Sparks
Print Book: $7.99
2. Private Berlin by James Patterson and Mark Sullivan
Print Book: $18.40
Ebook: These two authors are offering their first 23 Chapters as free "BE CAREFUL" because for the REST OF THE BOOK, You WILL be required to pay the FULL AMOUNT OF THE EBOOK IF YOU WANT TO CONTINUE READING IT. The ebook price is NOT LISTED, although I would 'guess' it would run at $14.99. This is kind of an advertising ploy to get you interested in the book, have you 'want to read' the rest of the book, then get you to purchase it. It's your choice as to whether or not you want to risk reading it, then purchasing the rest of the ebook.
3. Gone Girl: A Novel by Gillian Flynn
Print Book: $13.75
4. Hopeless by +Colleen Hoover
Ebook format ONLY at $3.99
May I also inform you this book is #1 on the NYT Ebook List, AGAIN!! Woooo-hooo! Way to go, +Colleen Hoover ! #1, again! For the last several weeks in a row, she has been #1 with this book, "Hopeless"!
I've read this book, and it DESERVES to be at #1! It is BREATHLESS! +Colleen Hoover is an AMAZING author who knows how to write, how to pull you into the story, and NOT let you go! You will NOT put this book down, so if you have others who depend on you - too bad! You can catch my review for this book here: http://bit.ly/WZHcvp
It's been said around the blogosphere, and I happen to agree as well, that this book has THE BEST FIRST KISS, WITHOUT THEM EVEN KISSING! OMG!!!! Seriously! THAT great! Check it out!
5. Fifty Shades of Grey: Book One of the Fifty Shades Trilogy by +E L James
Print Book: $8.77
Ebook: $9.99 - Isn't it something how the paperback keeps DROPPING in price, yet the ebook REMAINS THE SAME as the day it was released? I don't agree, but that's my opinion. It's not 'my cup-of-tea, anyway.
6. Suspect by Robert Crais
Print Book: $15.99
7. Ever After by Kim Harrison
Print Book: $17.69
8. Fifty Shades Darker: Book Two of the Fifty Shades Trilogy by +E L James
Print Book: $8.77
Ebook: $9.99 Again, the paperback keeps DROPPING in price, while the ebook remains the SAME as the DAY IT CAME OUT! What gives with this? Don't ebooks go on sale, too, like the print book? MY pet-peeve!
9. Fifty Shades Freed: Book Three of the Fifty Shades Trilogy by +E L James
Print Book: $8.77
Ebook: $9.99 - NO SALES FOR EBOOKS! Not that I would buy these anyway.
10. The Forgotten by David Baldacci
Print Book: $17.75
Ebook: $ 9.99 (Now this ebook's price HAS dropped!)
11. The Racketeer by John Grisham
Print Book: $15.83
12. Someone to Love by +Addison Moore
Ebook format only: $0.99cents
13. The Coincidence of Callie and Kayden by +Jessica Sorensen
Ebook format ONLY $0.99cents!
14. The Fifth Assassin by Brad Meltzer
Print Book: $14.88
15. Bared to You: A Crossfire Novel by Sylvia Day
Print Book: $8.74
Ebook: $9.99 Again - The paperback price drops, but NOT the ebook! Amazing!
There we have the books! The Fifty Shades series are ALL back on the list, as is the Sylvia Day series. I would like to give +Colleen Hoover the credit for bringing PASSION to the list, but the others are not Passion. They are in the Erotica Genre, unless that IS what people want? Not 'my' cup-of-tea, but whatever? Give me a book like Hopeless, and I'm MORE than happy! The writing!!! Oh, my! EXCELLENT!
