Hot New Titles on Sale Today

It's another huge week in a whirlwind publishing season of big-name authors and long-awaited books. Yesterday Senator Ted Kennedy's memoir, True Compass, went on sale. (Did you see the "60 Minutes" segment on Sunday?) Today we have two much-anticipated books: a novel and a nonfiction title. Dan Brown's sequel to The Da Vinci Code, The Lost Symbol, is set in Washington, DC, and again features Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon. Will it see the success The Da Vinci Code saw? That book has sold 80 million copies and has been translated into 44 languages. Wow. Also on sale today is Jon Krakauer's book, Where Men Win Glory: The Odyssey of Pat Tillman, which tells the story of the NFL-star-turned-Army-Ranger who was killed by friendly fire in Afghanistan in 2004, and the resulting cover-up of the event. Sad. I'm a HUGE Krakauer fan -- his researching, storytelling, and ability to tell it like it is make for books that pack a big wallop. We've got all of these books and more, so we hope you'll come see us.
