‘Guernsey’ an Official Hit

USA Today‘s Books Buzz column declares “Guernsey is a Literary Hit.” Of course, we knew that already, based on library hold patterns. Last week, the four libraries we checked had a total of 590 reserves on all formats of the book; this week, it’s up to 852.

Nancy Pearl, also a fan, reviews it this week on her KUOW show.

Our audio contributor, Robin Whitten, Editor and Founder of AudioFile, tells us she’s enjoying the audio version and promises a review in the next few days.

    Hi, Ms. Nora – I enjoy reading your blog via RSS. It gives me an “in the know” update on what’s hot or will be hot.

    I wrote about the Guernsey book yesterday, and then today saw that you had a post about it. I don’t want the book to end. Juliet is almost ready to set foot on the island.

    Cheers from Keddy in Houston
