THE HELP is a ‘Book We Like’

NPR’s “Books We Like” picked Kathryn Stockett’s The Help yesterday.

As we mentioned earlier, the book recently broke into Amazon’s top ten. It’s also climbing print lists, rising to its peak position after six weeks on the new USA Today list (#94). We hear it also rises on the 7/12 NYT Hardcover Fiction list to #12 (from #15).

Such slow-building titles are rare these days. Generally, books hit their peak in their first week on sale and then begin to slide, sometimes precipitously.

Reminder: Stockett will be at ALA, appearing at the ALTAFF Gala Author Tea (Monday, 2 to 4 p.m.) along with Lisa Scottoline, Jill McCorkle, Gillian Flynn and Jane Stanton Hitchcock.

She will also be at the Penguin booth, #2020 on Monday, July 13th, from 11:00 to noon. For the many authors appearing at the Penguin booth, check their full schedule.
