Top Reads: Oscar Nominees Climb New York Times' Nonfiction List, Week Ending 2/2
Since there's no end-all-be-all 'best seller' list, BWW Books has rounded up both The New York Times' top sellers as well as Amazon's - providing you with your one-stop look at this week's top reads!
Donna Tartt's THE GOLDFINCH moved up one rung to No. 1 on the New York Times' fiction list for the week ending February 2, 2014. SYCAMORE ROW by John Grisham took second, and THE INVENTION OF WINGS by Sue Monk Kidd dropped to number three.
Robert M. Gates' DUTY came in at the top of the non-fiction list, with several books that inspired this year's Oscar nominees climbing the ranks, including Solomon Northup's TWELVE YEARS A SLAVE in third and Jordan Belfort's THE WOLF OF WALL STREET at number eight.
On the Amazon side, Robert Michael Gates's DUTY fell to No. 10 with John Green's THE FAULT IN OUR STARS, soon coming to the big screen, coming out on top. Markus Zusak's THE BOOK THIEF, now also a feature film, rounds out the top three.
