August '09 Indie Next List

Shop Indie Bookstores

Each month, Indie Bound comes out with its list of the 20 hottest titles (click on the blue logo above to be directed to the website). I have found that these books, even if not yet on the bestsellers lists at major book retailers yet, WILL be the books that everyone is talking about. So, if you want to be ahead of the curve, in the know, or just want to pare your To-Read list down to a manageable 20, check out the Indie Next List. You won't be disappointed! You can also find a nice brochure with all 20 Books, with blurbs, at your local Independent book seller. I have my favorite! Keep it local, people!

Of all 20 titles, this one is at the top of my list.

Unfortunately, I haven't read Girl with the Dragon Tattoo yet (on the October '08 Indie Next List). I went in to my favorite book store over the weekend to pick it up, only to learn that the town, and my bookstore, was flooded. Thankfully, the rain has held off, as has the river. I'm giving them time to dry out before I pick up that title, along with my Indie Next List for August '09 (and a few dozen other books, I'm sure). I will be back this week!

Weird. I left a message and it' didn't post.

Bummer about the flooding! Did it get the books wet? That makes me
want to weep....wet books!

I think you will really like The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. I'm picking up the second one either tomorrow or Thurs., from the library. It's so sad that the writer died before he saw his three books published.

At the time I was there, they had been able to save all the books -- that was my first question, too!

Looking forward to Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
