Amazon’s most popular book of 2013

Have heard of it?

It might surprise you to learn that the most popular book of 2013 was a self help non-fiction.

I was shocked this afternoon to discover that I had never heard of the most popular Amazon book for 2013.  Strength Finder 2.0 by Tom Rath.

This book has been downloaded more times than any other book this year!

I found it when I started doing a little Christmas Shopping today. I usually look through all the top sellers lists, such as CD, Dvd’s and Books, to get a few ideas for the family.

Emerging writers diary, Strength Finder

Strength Finder 2.0 is a follow up to a very popular book that came out in 2001 – Loaded with hundreds of strategies for applying your strengths to building a great life, this book and accompanying website ‘will change the way you look at yourself–and the world around you–forever.’

I am pretty keen to read it now!

I wonder – If I missed the most popular book of 2013, what else have I over looked this year?  When I consider the volume of books, novels and Ebooks printed and released every year – I am over whelmed.  How will I ever read all that material?  What will I miss out on, because there is just not enough time?

    I thought the top three where pretty interesting. Lean in at Number two and – So glad to see a Children’s book at number 3 on the list – Well done diary of a whimpy kid. I wonder how many women brought ‘Lean In’ over their lunch break at work?
