‘Beat the Reaper’ Gets New Fans

One of the debut novels we are tracking is Beat the Reaper,  the first novel by Josh Bazell, a comic thriller. Last month, the WSJ declared it “THE hot debut novel” of the month. Reviews have been great and since we last checked, reserve ratios have become heavy in some libraries (largely a result of low ordering). Where reserves aren’t heavy, the book has fast turnaround.

Now, a new reason to consider buying more copies; Nancy Pearl tells Seattle NPR that she’s a fan.
