Debuting at #6 on the April 3rd Indie Hardcover Fiction Bestseller list is the #1 LibraryReads and IndieNext pick for April, The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry, by Gabrielle Zevin, (Workman/Algonquin; Highbridge Audio).
That may be confusing, since the book’s publication date, April 1, is after the cut-off date for reporting sales to the list, March 30.
The book actually shipped last week and enthusiastic indie booksellers wasted no time in getting it in to the hands of readers, employing some creative methods (today’s Shelf Awareness offers an example).
Their efforts were aided by an interview with the author on Friday’s All Things Considered.
