Best-Sellers - The New York Times 08/01/12

Olá Leitores,

E a nossa primeira postagem de 2012 é a atualização da lista semanal de mais vendidos do jornal The New York Times (sim, falta de criatividade minha né?). Prometo compensar vocês nesse mês de janeiro, aguardem! ;)

Com certeza temos que comentar sobre o livro de Stieg Larsson que está voltando a esta lista pela septuagésima primeira vez e o livro de George Martin que está na sua vigésima terceira semana na lista. Não é pra qualquer livro!
