Standing Order Changes March 2017
March 15, 2017
The standing order has been updated again this month (last rev. September 2016), and aside from a few quantity tweaks the main news is the addition of Graeme Simsion. Simsion is now on book number 3 – The Best of Adam Sharp, published May 2nd by St. Martin’s. His regularity and enduring popularity, especially in our system, make him a good fit for early and significant orders. The Rosie Effect print book has circulated 690 times and the Rosie Project (which was a Best Bet) an incredible 3025 times! The changes will be posted to the intranet as well soon.
Each week we get a report informing us of additional purchases of popular titles from the Holds Purchase Alert. Next week I’d like to start featuring purchase-triggering authors who may not yet be on the standing order but should definitely be on the watch list. Stay tuned.
Publisher summary: Two decades ago, Adam Sharp’s piano playing led him into a passionate relationship with Angelina Brown, an intelligent and strong-willed actress. They had a chance at something more–but Adam didn’t take it.
Now, on the cusp of turning fifty, Adam likes his life. He’s happy with his partner Claire, he excels in music trivia at quiz night at the local pub, he looks after his mother, and he does the occasional consulting job in IT. But he can never quite shake off his nostalgia for what might have been.
And then, out of nowhere, from the other side of the world, Angelina gets in touch. What does she want? Does Adam dare to live dangerously?
Set to the soundtrack of our lives, The Best of Adam Sharp follows along with emotion and humor as one man looks back on his past and decides if having a second chance is worth the risk.
