June 9, 2014 Los Angeles Times Best Sellers Available at the Library

After being displaced at the top of the Los Angeles Times Hardcover Fiction List last week by Ruth Reichl's, Delicious!The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt has regained the number one spot again this week. Capital in the Twenty-First Century by Thomas Piketty remains on top of the Hardcover Nonfiction list for the second week in a row.

Newcomers to the Hardcover Fiction List this week are Edward St. Aubyn's thinly veiled satire of the Man Booker Prize, Lost for Words and Craig Johnson's latest Longmire mystery, Any Other Name.

There are two books debuting on the Hardcover Nonfiction List this week as well.  At #2 is Think Like a Freak: The Authors of Freakonomics Offer to Retrain Your Brain by Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner, and at #8 is One Nation: What We Can All Do to Save America's Future by Ben Carson M.D.

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.
