With Christmas just around the corner and less than one week to go, many people will be scrambling to the shops to pick up those last-minute gifts…
Many people receive jewellery, perfume, Lynx sets, and even socks for Christmas.
However, for that avid reader in your life, they’ll appreciate nothing more than a good book that they can dig into.
In this article, we take a look at the top five best selling books at Easons. These books can be purchased online on the Easons website, at the Eason bookstore in Gorey or at any other Eason bookstore nationwide.
5 – The Light We Carry – Michelle Obama
Obama’s The Light We Carry is a powerful, insightful follow-up to the critically acclaimed, multi-million #1 bestselling memoir. It is a follow-up to her best-selling memoir, entitled Becoming. First Lady Michelle Obama shares practical wisdom and powerful strategies for staying hopeful and balanced in today’s highly uncertain world.
4 – Small Things Like These – Claire Keegan
It is 1985, in an Irish town. During the weeks leading up to Christmas, Bill Furlong, a coal and timber merchant, faces into his busiest season. As he does the rounds, he feels the past rising up to meet him – and encounters the complicit silences of a people controlled by the Church.
3 – Lessons in Chemistry – Bonnie Garmus
Chemist Elizabeth Zott is not your average woman. In fact, Elizabeth Zott would be the first to point out that there is no such thing. But it’s the early 1960s and her all-male team at Hastings Research Institute take a very unscientific view of equality. Except for one: Calvin Evans, the lonely, brilliant, Nobel-prize nominated grudge-holder who falls in love with – of all things – her mind. True chemistry results. Like science, life is unpredictable.
2 – Long Shadows – David Baldacci
Things are changing for Decker. He’s in crisis following the suicide of a close friend and receipt of a letter concerning a personal issue which could change his life forever.
Together with the prospect of working with a new partner, Frederica White, Amos knows that this case will take all of his special skills to solve. As darkness falls, evil comes to light.
Judge Julia Cummins seemingly had no enemies, and there was no forced entry to her property. Close friends and neighbours in the community apparently heard nothing, and Cummins’ distraught ex-husband, Barry, and teenage son, Tyler, both have strong alibis. Decker must first find the answer to why the judge felt the need for a bodyguard, and the meaning behind the strange calling card left by the killer. It is payback time.
1 – No Plan B – Lee Child
When your name is Jack Reacher, the truth is always worth doing time for. Gerrardsville, Colorado. One tragic event. Two witnesses. Two conflicting accounts. One witness sees a woman throw herself in front of a bus – clearly suicide. The other witness is Jack Reacher. And he sees what really happened – a man in grey hoodie and jeans, swift and silent as a shadow, pushing the victim to her death, before grabbing her bag and sauntering away. Reacher follows the killer, not knowing that this was no random act of violence.
It is part of something much bigger…a sinister, secret conspiracy, with powerful people on the take, enmeshed in an elaborate plot that leaves no room for error. If any step is compromised, the threat will have to be quickly and permanently removed. Because when the threat is Reacher, there is No Plan B.
No Plan B can be purchased online or at Easons Gorey.
