Editors’ choice: The best of the bestsellers Add to ...

In a new feature, the Globe’s Book editors reveal their select list of the week’s top titles:

1. And the Mountains Echoed By Khaled Hosseini (Viking Canada, $30)

2. 419 By Will Ferguson (Penguin Canada, $20)

3. Let’s Explore Diabetes With Owls By David Sedaris (Little, Brown, $30)

4. Joyland By Stephen King (Hard Case Crime, $12.95)

Who says everything’s online these days? Stephen King has decreed that his new novel, a house-of-horrors romp set in a 1970s amusement park, is to be available only as a good old-fashioned book made of paper. And the sales numbers suggest it’s a smart strategy.

5. The Spark By Kristine Barnett (Random House Canada, $29.95)

6. Wild By Cheryl Strayed (Vintage, $18.95)

7. The Orphan Master’s Son By Adam Johnson (Random House, $18.00)

8. The Rosie Project By Graeme Simison (HarperCollins, $19.99)

9. Scaredy Squirrel Goes Camping By Mélanie Watt (Kids Can Press, $16.95)

10. Wreck This Journal: Expanded Edition By Keri Smith (Perigree Trade, $16.00)

Whereas Steal This Book was a manifesto for a rule-breaking counterculture, Wreck This Journal is a salve for the Etsy generation, a kidult pleaser and creativity catalyst. A freestyle colouring book that encourages you to coffee-stain it and take it into the shower, its charm abides years after publication.
