Books What’s hot and what’s not

There are many books nowadays that sell very well in stores and there are some that don’t.  50 Shades Of Gray is a very popular seller written by E.L. James.  The series has sold approximately 60 million copies in the short time that it has been out.   It is Britain’s best-selling book in fact.  The Harry Potter series and The Davinci Code are also on the best-selling list.  The Davinci Code written by Dan Brown has sold approximately 80 million copies and the Harry Potter series written by J.K. Rowling has sold 450 million copies approximately.  The very well-known Twilight series written by Stephanie Meyer has sold approximately 116 million copies.

There are things called e-Readers that are more common than regular books nowadays people don’t read regular books they read their kindles and nooks and e-Readers.  According to http://reviews.cnet.com/best-ebook-readers/ the kindle is the best e-Reader.  I personally own a nook and I like it.

If you need a really good book that leaves you with a message then I recommend you read Th1rteen R3asons Why by Jay Asher.  It’s about a kid who gets these 13 tapes that happen to be the 13 reasons why this girl in his class committed suicide.  I’ve read it and loved it,  http://www.centraltimes.org/news/2012/04/02/4141/ This gives you an insight on what went into making Th1rteen R3asons Why.

There are some books that are the worst sold books.  One of them is Cooking Okra with Oprah. Chaz Bono’s Transgender Fitness Workout, Can You Marry Your Gay Cousin In North Carolina? and More Brain Teasers, Fifty Shades of Gray’s Anatomy, Dress For Success the Nicki Minaj Way, Why I Only Date/Marry Guys Whos Names Start With The Letter K by Kim Kardashian and 101 Ways To Hide Your Receding Hairline by Labron James are other worst selling books of the year so far.
