On the Bestsellers List

One of the most unexpected titles to appear on the Publishers Weekly bestsellers list is a slim volume The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing by Marie Kondo [648 KON, also AB/CD 648 KON, and ebook]. The list, based on bookstore data through August 23, shows The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up at #10, and, the book has been on the list for 34 weeks!

It seems that Americans are starting to be overwhelmed by the amount of stuff they've been accumulating. We've become a "cheap-goods/throw-away" society, but many people can't seem to actually throw things away.

The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up has a few reader names on the waiting list, but that doesn't mean we don't have scads of other titles that deal with "tidying up" your space. You'll find these titles in the 640s section. We also have a DVD, Organizing from the Inside Out [DVD 640 ORG]. If looking in our catalog, use these slightly unfamiliar subject terms: "Orderliness" and "Storage in the home." Or, do a simple keyword search using "clutter" as your search term.
