2018 Top 3 Best Books and Why

Today was the opening day of Book Expo America 2018 Right after it closes on June 1, it will be followed by a simultaneous event, BookCon 

Both events is highlighted by starting with power house personalities. Today’s main keynote speaker was Len Riggio, Chairman of Barnes & Noble and on June 3, Sunday both President Clinton & James Patterson  President Bill Clinton and the world’s bestselling author James Patterson will discuss their forthcoming novel, The President is Missing, offering candid insights into their unique collaboration and research, as well as the timely and alarming issues their novel raises about our world today.

We started in this order as the 2018 Top 3 Bestselling Books connects the upcoming bestseller, The President is Missing with the top 3 list:

  1.  A Higher Loyalty
  2. Fire and Fury
  3.  A Day in The Life of Marlon Bundo

The main relevance of these books comes down to one subject, The Trump Administration. As CNN Money notes, books about the Trump administration have filled the No. 1 slot on The New York Times’ hardcover nonfiction list since mid-January. That’s in large part because of the dominance of “Fire and Fury,” which sat in the top spot for 10 straight weeks.

The books that eventually replaced it, of course, related to Trump as well. “Russian Roulette” by Michael Isikoff and David Corn — which explores Russia’s involvement in the 2016 presidential election — was the best-seller for three weeks in April as stated by the Business Insider. Number one spot goes to A Higher Loyalty since it was release in April 17.

Former FBI Director Comey’s book join others on the New York Times list with its release last month. The book, which details two decades of Comey’s work and includes insights from his short-lived experience with President Donald Trump, has already climbed toward the top of the Amazon best-seller list for the year — just including presales. Flatiron Books, Comey’s publisher, moved the release date up several weeks as a result of the growing interest and printed 850,000 copies, according to CNN.

The President Is Missing confronts a threat so huge that it jeopardizes not just Pennsylvania Avenue and Wall Street, but all of America. Uncertainty and fear grip the nation. There are whispers of cyber terror and espionage and a traitor in the Cabinet. Even the President himself becomes a suspect, and then he disappears from public view.

For some they want to learn more about what’s going on the Russian involvement in meddling with the 2016 Presidential elections and was there indeed a “Collusion”. Some readers just wanna simply get more information on the Trump administration and President Trump.

As summer reading starts, will find out more about readers are looking forward to reading. June also starts going back to school and new 2018 textbooks and study aids. For now, what are your best books for 2018?

Google “Rigged”@Trump, let’s read Silicon States

51hP-wNbcqL._SX327_BO1,204,203,200_Google search results for ‘Trump News’ shows only the viewing/reporting of Fake News Media,” @realdonaldtrump. Google responds with a the shebang of algorithms and search results rankings and not political endeavors.

This was perfect timing on the new release book, Silicon States: The Power and Politics of Big Tech.  This new release book talks about  on “While the promise of technology is seductive, it is important to understand these corporations’ possible impacts on our political and socioeconomic institutions. Greene emphasizes that before we hand our future over to a rarefied group of companies, we should examine the world they might build and confront its benefits, prejudices, and inherent flaws. Silicon States pushes us to ask if, ultimately, this is the future we really want”.

As Silicon Valley faces increased scrutiny over its mistreatment of women, cultural shortcomings, and its role in widespread Russian election interference, we are learning where its interests truly lie, and about the great power these companies wield over an unsuspecting citizenry. Then came another bombshell intrigue today from President Trump. Trump appeared to be referencing a story published in recent days by conservative outlet PJ Media, which claimed that Google was “deprioritizing” content from conservative websites. The story was picked up by other conservative outlets including Breitbart.

All while Twitter, Facebook and Google executives are soon to appear on the Congress of the United States about election interference and censorship.

Back to the business of book selling, indeed for years search results was very much influence by content and users searching. However, agreeably it became a business on CPC and clicks for conversions. And wallah, if you are are small independent bookstore in  town which is usually known by the locals, guess what unless you search yourself with a specific name or locality and simply make a general bookstore search, do you think you will ever see your store? Of course, “NO” Pay to be on top of the first page and top of that page and then yes you will be able to search yourself.

Even making simple google searches on buy books, best online bookstores, it’s the same pages for years and years with the same companies and results on the first page will forever be the same as if they never get updated. The big answer is “$” as the biggest spenders to pay who also gets the monopoly of the clicks and traffic.  Thank God in the recent earlier years for the evolution of social media as another advertising way to promote. Then the same $ started with social media and hence today with have such issues as censorship and election interference.

We’ll end this short discussion considering is it really time to “Regulate” so there is some control instead of the business of money talks?

 

 

Ci6 Keynote Speaker Chelsea Clinton on Teaching Kids the Value of Persistence

Source: Ci6 Keynote Speaker Chelsea Clinton on Teaching Kids the Value of Persistence

The daughter of former President Bill Clinton and 2016 presidential contender Hillary Clinton, Chelsea Clinton is the author of the number-one New York Times bestselling picture book She Persisted: 13 American Women Who Changed the World, which received a starred review from Publishers Weekly, and She Persisted Around the World: 13 Women Who Changed History (both Philomel). Clinton is also the author of the New York Times bestselling It’s Your World: Get Informed, Get Inspired & Get Going! (Puffin Books) and, with Devi Sridhar, Governing Global Health: Who Runs the World and Why? (Oxford University Press).

On October 2, Clinton, who serves as the vice chair of the Clinton Foundation, where her initiatives include helping to empower the next generation of leaders, will publish Start Now! You Can Make a Difference (Philomel), a middle-grade title for young activists.

Muscatine is the owner of Politics and Prose with her husband, ABA Board member Bradley Graham. A former Washington Post reporter and White House speech writer during the Clinton administration, Muscatine is currently writing Hillaryland, her story about working with Hillary Clinton, to be published by Penguin Press.

At the Thursday, June 21, breakfast, following Muscatine’s introduction, Clinton thanked booksellers in the audience, some of whom she recognized from her previous book tours. “I’m so grateful to all of you because without your support and partnership, I wouldn’t be able to have the reach that I hope to have with the work that I feel called to do and the obligation that I feel to children in our country,” she said.

The first time the two met was when Muscatine worked for Hillary Clinton; Chelsea Clinton was just 13 years old and living in the White House. At the time, Muscatine received some impassioned advice from Hillary on raising her kids to be readers: “Your mother was fierce, relentless, incessantly reminding me to read to my children — constantly. She badgered us and others who had children along with me in the White House; she would constantly be sending us books and CDs…Not that I wouldn’t have [read to my kids], but it was so important for me to hear it from her. So I was wondering, when you had Charlotte, did she do the same thing to you?”

Chelsea Clinton’s daughter, Charlotte, is now three years old, and her son, Aidan, is two. She said her mother inculcated her with the same message about the importance of reading to kids and making sure they grow up in a language-rich environment.

“I do think that the stories we tell our children are profoundly important for how we help them either expand or limit their world and how they think about their own possibilities within our world and our shared future,” Clinton said.
