Reading Ahead: September 2013, part 1

The New York Times bestseller's list, which has been ongoing since 1942 (that's 71 years and counting, if you're keeping score) has long been considered the preeminent list of best-selling books in the United States.  A mere fifteen slots for the best-selling in hardcover fiction, though if you read further, they'll also give you the following ten "runners up".  Now, I'm no psychic, and I have no "insider knowledge" of the publishing industry, but I have been doing this shtick for a number of years, and here are my best bets for fiction titles that are the surest of sure things for the bestsellers lists in September.*  In no particular order:

The Longest Ride, by Nicholas Sparks

Gone, by James Patterson & Michael Ledwidge

Never Go Back, by Lee Child

W is for Wasted, by Sue Grafton

Deadline, by Sandra Brown

The Quest, by Nelson Demille

*Yes, there will certainly be others, but these are the absolute guarantees and likely candidates for a top-spot on the list, to boot.
