What Were You Reading Five Years Ago?

I came across the Publishers Weekly bestsellers list from July 16, 2012. Here's what the country was reading back then:
  1. Flynn, Gillian.  Gone Girl.
  2. Evanovich, Janet.  Wicked Business.
  3. Weiner, Jennifer.  Next Best Thing.
  4. Hilderbrand, Elin.  Summerland.
  5. Slaughter, Karin.  Criminal.
  6. Rollins, James.  Bloodline: A SIGMA Force Novel.
  7. Grisham, John.  Calico Joe.
  8. Martin, George R. R.  A Dance with Dragons: A Song of Ice and Fire, Book 5.
  9. Furst, Alan.  Mission to Paris.
  10. Walker,  Karen Thompson.  Age of Miracles.
  11. Cussler, Clive.  Storm.
  12. Frank, Dorothea Benton.  Porch Lights.
  13. Patterson, James.  11th Hour.
  14. Walter, Jess.  Beautiful Ruins.
  15. Child, Lincoln.  Third Gate.
The number one title, Gone Girl, had only been released in June, and by July 16, it had already spent five weeks on the bestsellers list! It only goes to show you what a good plot and great pre-publication hype can do!


You may have gotten caught up in the Gone Girl mania at the time, or, you may have decided to wait until demand died down. I checked our catalog on Tuesday and found that we have the regular print, eBook, audiobook, eAudio, and two copies of the subsequent movie on DVD all available to borrow! We even have a copy in Chinese, titled Kong Zhi, sitting on the shelf! So, if you never read it back then, here's your chance to read it now!
