Another Summer Sleeper

The Wall Street Journal predicts a book with what they call a “cutesy” title, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, will be one of the summer’s surprise hits. According to the WSJ, pre-pub buzz is so strong among booksellers, that publisher Dial Press is shipping over 100,000 copies. It’s also the #1 Indie Next pick for August. Both B&N and Costco have placed large orders.

Libraries show light ordering, with reserves building. Few have ordered the audio or large type editions.
