We’ve collected the books debuting on Indiebound’s Indie Bestseller List for the week ending August 09, 2015–a sneak peek at the books everybody will be talking about next month.
(Debuted at #5 in Hardcover Fiction) Wind/Pinball by Haruki Murakami: “In the spring of 1978, a young Haruki Murakami sat down at his kitchen table and began to write. The result: two remarkable short novels—Hear the Wind Sing and Pinball, 1973—that launched the career of one of the most acclaimed authors of our time.” (August 2015)
(Debuted at #12 in Hardcover Nonfiction) Plunder and Deceit by Mark R. Levin: “In modern America, the civil society is being steadily devoured by a ubiquitous federal government. But as the government grows into an increasingly authoritarian and centralized federal Leviathan, many parents continue to tolerate, if not enthusiastically champion, grievous public policies that threaten their children and successive generations with a grim future at the hands of a brazenly expanding and imploding entitlement state poised to burden them with massive debt, mediocre education, waves of immigration, and a deteriorating national defense.” (August 2015)
(Debuted at #13 in Early & Middle Grade Readers) Goodbye Stranger by Rebecca Stead: “Bridge is an accident survivor who’s wondering why she’s still alive. Emily has new curves and an almost-boyfriend who wants a certain kind of picture. Tabitha sees through everybody’s games—or so she tells the world. The three girls are best friends with one rule: No fighting. Can it get them through seventh grade?” (August 2015)
