Back in 1999 while booktalking about new thrillers at a library conference, I held up Angels & Demons by Dan Brown showing that neat original cover that looked the same upside down. Think “ambigram.” I’d forgotten all about it until just recently when another librarian said to me, “I remember you, you held up Dan Brown’s book and said he was going to be the hot new thriller author way before The Da Vinci Code was published.
Since then, over the years, I’ve picked other winners in my booktalks, but a couple real “dogs,” too. Hopefully, my picks for the “hot” reading this summer will all be sizzlers!
September: The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown – Robert Langdon returns for his third adventure.
It’s been a long wait, but I know that Dan Brown won’t let me down.
