David Kelly, Senior Librarian, Literature & Fiction Department,
Best Sellers

The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt is #1 for an ninth week on the Los Angeles Times Hardcover Fiction Bestseller List.  For the second week in a row there are no debuts on the Fiction List. Two books return to the list after a short absence, The Signature of All Things by Elizabeth Gilbert and Allegiant by Vernoica Roth.

There is also very little turnover on the Hardcover Nonfiction List this week as Malcolm Gladwell's David and Goliath is #1 once again.   Everything I Need to Know I Learned From a Little Golden Book by Diane Muldrow is the only newcomer to the list.

Click on any title on the list to place a hold on an item free of charge.  You will need to know your library card number and the last four digits of the phone number associated with your card. After placing the hold select the library location to which you want the item sent and we will notify you when it is available for pick up.
