Best-Sellers - The New York Times 26/02/12

Olá leitores,

Como vão os preparativos para o carnaval por aí?? (Pra quem gosta, até porque eu mesmo não sou muito fã :p). Estou tentando ao máximo manter a regularidade nas postagens mas está difícil. Calma, eu não desistirei :D. Um pouco de culpa da ausência desta semana é O Hobbit, do Sir Tolkien, que me deu um pouco de trabalho, mas acabei de ler e vocês vão poder conferir a resenha ainda hoje.

Sem mais conversas paralelas, vamos ao que interessa. A lista desta semana tem mais dois livros novos, policiais, no topo da lista e, como de costume, o terceiro livro da Trilogia Millennium está entre os mais vendidos (Trilogia que com certeza irei ler!).
