Curtis Sittenfeld makes an impression on our bestsellers this week, with Rodham, her fresh-off-the-press novel imagining a different life for Hilary Clinton, sliding in at number two. It wasn’t enough though to knock off Julia Baird’s thoughtful rumination on internal happiness, Phosphorescence, which has been our top seller for five weeks running now!

The events of this week have had a strong effect on our reading. Layla F Saad’s Me and White Supremacy, a comprehensive workbook that examines white supremacy, dismantling white privilege, and being anti-racist, has rocketed into third position, and Robin DiAngelo’s now-classic White Fragility has also popped back up in our required reading. For customers wanting to explore these issues closer to home, we recommend browsing our collection of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander voices.
