National Bestsellers

Taken from the newspaper listing and Amazon briefs, I want to share with you the nonfiction national bestsellers this week:


1.The Audacity of Hope by Barack Obama, engages themes raised in his keynote speech at the 2004 Democratic National Convention, shares personal views on faith and values and offers a vision of the future that involves repairing a "political process that is broken" and restoring a government that has fallen out of touch with the people.

Barack Obama is my current idol and I will surely buy this as soon as the budget allows.



2. The Innocent Man. I know it's by John Grisham but it is his first nonfiction book about a man sentenced to death for a crime he did not commit.


3.
Born on a Blue Day: Inside the Extraordinary Mind of an Autistic Savant
. A memoir by an autistic savant who can perform extraordinary mathematical calculations.

4.
I Feel Bad About My Neck and Other Thoughts on Being a Woman
by Nora Ephron. A witty look at aging.

5.
The God Delusion
by Richard Dawkins about an Oxford scientist who asserts that belief in God is irrational and that religion has greatly harmed the world.



Check them all out at Amazon.com

Happy Reading!
