For the second consecutive day, USA Today featured the Book Sense 76 picks of independent booksellers. On page four of the Thursday, July 25, Life section, an article by Bob Minzesheimer highlighted the top ten Reading Group 76 under the headline "Independents Pick Top 10."
The article included a quote from Book Sense Senior Marketing Consultant Carl Lennertz, who said, "From what Ive seen in this short history of reading groups, it seems that some of the classics, from Dickens to Cather, have now been read by most reading groups, and the groups have now moved on to the best contemporary books."
The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver (Perennial) tops the list of independents reading group picks. For the complete top ten Reading Group 76, click here.
