By Maryann Yin Comment

Broken Wheel (GalleyCat)We’ve collected the books debuting on Indiebound’s Indie Bestseller List for the week ending Jan. 24, 2016–a sneak peek at the books everybody will be talking about next month.

(Debuted at #5 in Hardcover Nonfiction) The Road to Little Dribbling by Bill Bryson: “Twenty years ago, Bill Bryson went on a trip around Britain to discover and celebrate that green and pleasant land. The result was Notes from a Small Island, a true classic and one of the bestselling travel books ever written. Now he has traveled about Britain again, by bus and train and rental car and on foot, to see what has changed—and what hasn’t.” (Jan. 2016)

(Debuted at #10 in Hardcover Fiction) Even Dogs in the Wild by Ian Rankin: “Detective Inspector Siobhan Clarke is feeling the heat. She’s investigating the death of a senior government prosecutor, David Minton, who has friends in high places. When one of their own is killed, the powers that be want answers fast. But Clarke is puzzled: if Minton died in a robbery as everyone thinks, why is nothing missing from his home? The answer may lie not in what was taken, but in what was left behind at the scene–an ominous note.” (Jan. 2016)

(Debuted at #13 in Paperback Fiction) The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend by Katarina Bivald: “The bookstore might be a little quirky. Then again, so is Sara. But Broken Wheel’s own story might be more eccentric and surprising than she thoughts. A heartwarming reminder of why we are booklovers, this is a sweet, smart story about how books find us, change us, and connect us.” (Jan. 2016)
