New York Times Top 15 Bestsellers for the week ending October 13th, 2012

Welcome Readers! Yes, it's Sunday, again! Here it is again! The Top 15 best sellers for this previous week! 
So what do you ALL think about this week's books? 
We have one 'new' self-published author - #12. I assume a Publisher will be picking that book up, so a suggestion to anyone who wants the paperback - buy it NOW! Once the Publisher purchases the book from the author, it is tied up for weeks after (except the ebook which WILL still be available) while they reprint it with all their logos, etc.
What do you think about the types of books on the list this week?
One thing "I" want to know is HOW can there STILL be such enormous sales of the 50 Shades books, enough to KEEP it on the bestseller List STILL??? Hasn't EVERYONE who would have wanted to read this book have read it by now? We have 6 books out of the 15, almost HALF of ALL these books, including the 50 Shades, that are in that category. Hmmm? Is it a trickle down effect from 50 Shades, and a fad at this moment? I don't ever remember seeing this many books like these, especially in the Top 15 best sellers, EVER! Is this country SO STARVED for these types of books for lack of it in their own lives, or is it that much of an escape from reality that makes these so appealing, or is it that people 'want' these types of books and why they are SO popular? What IS the attraction to them? I honestly don't understand? Ha, I guess you all know what is NOT on MY nightstand! LOL! 
I want to see MORE 'NEW BOOKS AND AUTHORS' that write other genres than these! I'm just getting tired of seeing the SAME books by the SAME authors here! I'll admit it. I like variety, and AM craving some of it!
I guess the answer to that is . . . we'll see what happens as the weeks go by and what the Holiday Season will bring us!
I AM looking forward to the holiday books! What about you? I LOVE Christmas stories and books! Can't wait!
LEAVE A COMMENT, PLEASE! Tell us what YOU are reading now! I'll start it!

I've had a MILLION doctor appointments these last 2 weeks, and have been dreadfully exhausted, and not up-to-par enough to get everythig I usually do, done. I have a black spot in my vision in my left eye -YIKES! There have been days I can't see as they have dilated my eyes SO much, it has lasted up to 9 hours! We'll get that figured out. Anyway, watch for the post! You can SEE the RAK button in the left side-column! It's a GREAT program that another blogger sponsors!
