Our Best Seller List for April 2007
April showered us with author events and book group orders which will be reflected here in sales of Hardback and Trade books. Paper sales were somewhat lighter but summer’s coming and we fully expect the annual August peak in those.
Book signings are educational and often remembered with fondness like this recent memory. Richard recalls during a book signing a few years back how David Halberstam kept asking all kinds of questions about the book business and readers. His fresh curiosity and constant peppering of questions was as much remembered as his award winning writing and dedication to the truth. Peace.
