Blockbuster season is here! May 16, 2007

Posted by sneaks in adult, BCPL best practices, display topics, fiction, summer.

… and not just at the movies. Sure, Spiderman 3, Shrek 3, and the third Pirates of the Caribbean movie are going to get a lot of attention this summer, but publishers have their big guns at the ready too!

Make a space for best-sellers (if you don’t have one already) and keep it filled with hot titles straight from the return room. Put up multiple copies of the same title, or celebrate a single author by loading up a display full of their recent titles. Authors such as James Patterson, Nicholas Sparks, Danielle Steele, and Janet Evanovich use the same cover layout for each book – makes for a striking display!

The sure-fire hits you can count on for this summer are:

Patterson, James. The 6th Target.

Hosseini, Khaled. A thousand splendid suns.

Connelly, Michael. The Overlook.

Sandford, John. Invisible Prey.

Evanovich, Janet. Lean Mean 13.

Baldacci, David. Simple Genius.

Coulter, Catherine. Double Take.

Griffin, W.E.B. The Double Agents.

Frey, Stephen. The Fourth Order.

Parker, Robert B. Spare Change.

Steele, Danielle. Bungalow 2.

… and some J series book by this British woman named Rowling, due out July 21.

Look into the future whenever you want using Amazon’s New and Future Releases list (presented in order of popularity) and BCPL’s Hot Titles list (alpha by author).
