Thursday, March 30, 2011: According to USA TODAY, the following list contains the top 25 best selling books (out of 150) - based on sales through Sunday, 03/27/2011. For the complete list of 150 books for the week or just to check out more information - plus reviews, book news and a searchable archive of USA TODAY's Best-Selling Books list - visit their website.
Note of the week: YA continues to struggle to gain ground in the top 25 books on the list this week. Other than the addition of INVINCIBLE - a new Vampire / Zombie title which debuted at #23 - no new news from our teen friendly genre. I will say, I just finished reading UNBROKEN, by Laura Hillenbrand (currently #11) - and what an absolutely amazing read this was. While a departure from all the YA I've been clawing my way through at a wicked pace, this story is a must read and highly recommended (please see my review posted just below this entry).
