David Kelly, Senior Librarian, Literature & Fiction Department,
May 11, 2014 Los Angeles Times Best Sellers Available at the Library

As it has been for basically the entire year, The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt, is the number 1 book on the Los Angeles Times Hardcover Fiction List this week. There is a new number 1 on the Hardcover Nonfiction List, however, as A Fighting Chance by Elizabeth Warren has replaced Michael Lewis' Flash Boys at the top.

There is plenty of turnover on both lists this week with new titles on the Fiction List, The Target by David Baldacci;  Chestnut Street by Maeve Binchy; Casebook by Mona Simpson; and The Serpent of Venice by Christopher Moore.  New on the Nonfiction List is John Wayne: The Life and Legend by Scott Eyman; Everybody's Got Something by Robin Roberts and Veronica Chambers; and Let's Just Say It Wasn't Pretty by Diane Keaton

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.
