Top 10 Again

We are SO busy today...I'm rushed off my feet...

Top 10

1: On Beauty by Zadie Smith
2: There Was An Old Lady WHo Swallowed A Fly (board book)
3: Remainder by Tom McCarthy
4: Camomile Lawn by Mary Wesley (flew off the table - new biog out - great summer read)
5: Secret Life of Trees by Colin Tudge
6: Blink by Malcolm Gladwell
7: Summer Book by Tove Jansson
8: The Leopard by Lampedusa
9: Short History of Tractors in Ukrainian by Marina Lewycka
10: Journey by Moonlight by Antal Szerb

As you can see there have been a few new entries and a couple that hold their position. Zadie tops our chart with her Orange Prize winner. The table continues to sell strongly while the bestsellers according to the rest of the world hardly appear at all.


  1. I used to know ALL the words to one of those books if it's the same one.Isn't there too much hint of possible death in it for children these days?
    Used to be my favourite song on Uncle Mac's radio programme on a Saturday morning, but no, hang on, Sparky's Magic Piano was better, do you have that? Or Nellie the Elephant? Or Tubby the Tuba?

  2. We have a great version of The Wheels on the Bus that people find almost impossible to resist...
