three days in london

Brexit has loomed large over the last three London Book Fairs and has been the focus of numerous panels and programs. But during the 2019 event, the issue came to a stunning crescendo, with three consecutive votes in the U.K. Parliament over the course of the fair’s three days leaving the U.K.’s divorce from Europe in a state of chaos.On Tuesday, March 12, the fair’s opening night, MPs over-whelmingly rejected Prime Minister Theresa May’s second proposed Brexit deal. That was followed by a vote on March 13 in which MPs ruled out leaving the E.U. without a new deal in place. And on March 14, MPs voted to seek a delay in leaving the E.U. Nearly three years after May invoked Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union, the…

unit sales flat in early march

Unit sales of print books were flat in the week ended Mar. 9, 2019, compared to the similar week in 2018, at outlets that report to NPD BookScan. A 6.5% gain in the adult nonfiction category offset declines in the other three major categories. The gain was due to several strong debuts, led by Girl, Stop Apologizing, Rachel Hollis’s follow-up to the still-steady-selling Girl, Wash Your Face. Stop Apologizing sold more than 156,000 copies in its first week, making it the #1-selling title of the week. Other new books atop the adult nonfiction bestseller list were The Case for Trump by Victor Davis Hanson, which sold nearly 27,000 copies and landed in third place on the category list, and Outer Order, Inner Calm by Gretchen Rubin, which sold more than…

the mystery of love: spotlight on michelle cox

While they were raised in very different socio-economic circumstances, Henrietta Von Harmon and Clive Howard find love and an affinity for solving crimes together in each of the four books of Michelle Cox’s series, which launched three years ago with A Girl Like You. In A Veil Removed, Henrietta and Clive are finally on their honeymoon when murder, once again, interrupts them. The couple must do what they do best: investigate. But things are trickier than ever, because the murder victim is a member of the Howard family.Cox describes her books as historical (they’re set in the 1930s), romantic, and captivatingly suspenseful. Yet the author says that she did not set out to write suspense. Originally, she was interested in penning only historical fiction based on her work at a…
