NY Times Bestsellers 40509

April 5, 2009

true_detectives There’s a new No. 1 book in the country, as Jodi Picoult’s latest novel, Handle With Care, was knocked to second place after having spent three weeks at the top. The latest champ is True Detectives by Jonathan Kellerman. I’ve not read any reviews of this novel yet, but plan to get to some during the week.

After Handle With Care, there’s another new novel on the list. It’s Outcast by Aaron Allston, and is a Star Wars book that tells the story of the extended Skywalker family. That certainly doesn’t sound like my cup of tea, so don’t expect a review to appear on this blog anytime soon!
