Sephora Employees, what's your store's bestsellers?

I hope this post is okay. If not, I'll take it down.

Which brands sell the most?

Top 3 in makeup for each category (foundation, concealer, blush, bronzer, etc)?

Top 3 in skincare?

Bonus: Makeup or skincare brands no one really buys/customers return the most.

It just seems like there are so many brands coming out nowadays and I'm hoping to try some new stuff :) Also curious.

World's worst chess books -- and yet they are bestsellers

I have just found a group of utterly nonsensical chess books, by the same author, that have obviously fake positive reviews -- and big sales -- on Amazon.

John Carlsen is listed as the author of four chess books, all published in the last two months.

These books have gotten hundreds of reviews; nearly all are five stars.

But the books are totally unreadable, as if they were translated poorly from another language. And many of the reviews are similar gibberish.

Excerpts from the books:

From Chess Strategies:

"Another reason pedestrian is unusual is that if you receive one of the parts of the page, you can announce any part you want."

That is supposed to say something like "Another reason pawns are unusual is that if you get one to the last row, you can make it into any piece you want." Nobody reading that mess could possibly give the book a good review.

From Chess Openings (which, at this moment, is #8 on Amazon's list of best-selling chess books, no doubt because of the fake reviews):

"Champ is picked by whoever unravels the chessboard puzzle. Chess is played on a squared board with 62 high contrast rotating squares ..."

More gobbledygook, and a chessboard has 64 squares. I am guessing that "rotating" is a translation of a word that means "alternating", as chess boards don't rotate.

The reviews are similarly bad. Examples (from glowing reviews for Chess Strategies, supposedly written by people with names that suggest they are native English speakers):

  • "Interesting book! I'd like to suggest this booki to all people who are beginners at chees !"

  • "The transport velocity could be very rapid, the first-class is very good, I love it very an awful lot, the price is likewise excellent, I advocate to buy. "

  • "There is needed to invest extensive energy and exertion in honing the aptitudes and remembering opening varieties. This book is similarly useful for both the novices just as the old players. This is a decent guide on the most proficient method to catch other player's above all else piece. The writer utilizes hypothetical clarifications to help the peruser study the game."

  • "I have this book to found out more and it never bombs me."

I don't know what is most disgusting: that someone would publish such worthless books, that they would use fake reviews to popularize the books, or that their strategy is actually succeeding.

(I've reported this to Amazon, for whatever that may be worth.)

NOTE: I've made a [separate post](https://ol

Watch Anurag Kashyap's " Last Train to Mahakali" and other episodes of "Star Bestsellers" available on Hotstar and YouTube .

This show was a anthology series with multiple 40-50 minute one of episodes of different genres. It was a launching for many top contemporary directors like Tigmangshu Dhulia ,Anurag Kashyap, Hansal Mehta, Imtiaz Ali and Sriram Raghavan. It also has many talented actors like Irfann, Nawaz, KayKay, Raghuvir Yadav, Rajit Kapoor etc." Last train to Mahakali " is my favourite but there are other good episodes like "first Kill", " Govind Aur Ganesh", "Prayas" etc.

Penny Reid on Jennifer L. Armentrout NYT Bestseller Status

Is this true? I haven't heard anything. Text taken from Reid's readers group.

***

Usually, after a book hits the New York Times bestsellers list, it gets a big bump in sales. It's also given attention from news media outlets, more likely to be considered by film producers, and the team behind it are also recognized (especially the publisher and editor).

An author colleague of mine hit #1 on the USA Today bestsellers list this week with a book published by a small press (so, not one of the big five publishers) but the New York Times chose to leave this book off their bestsellers list DESPITE it being the #1 bestselling book last week.

It is not in doubt that Jennifer L. Armentrout had the best selling book last week, period. This is a fact. But since the NYT curated her book off their list, the book and the team behind it will not be fully recognized for their amazing accomplishment. And I think that's just really sad and unfair.

No indie or small press book has hit the NYT since 2019, which means the list is no longer a bestsellers list or at all reflective of whether or not a book is a true bestseller.

Just, FYI. I thought you should all know. I don't like to be lied to, I figured maybe you didn't either ***

Korean Novel Competes With Western Bestsellers

Bestseller Under $4 don’t know how to post a pic so here’s a link

i was following up on wordexcerpt on twitter since they seem to be pretty active there and i could get solid news directly from them. was pretty surprised that one novel called β€˜daddy i don’t want to marry’ (also adapted as a webtoon called father i don’t want this marriage from tappytoon) and that it had been trending. it was competing next to some bestsellers like narnia, twilight, five feet apart, brave new world and 1984 lol the latter two is some novel that i was forced to read back in school days.

couple hour later curiosity got the best of me and i purchased the book on kindle since i saw that it was on discount. original was 9.99 so i thought yeah might as well since i’ll be saving money. better to buy it before the discount ends.

it’s not so bad. common villainess trope that we see a lot being fan translated but i suppose it brings me more happiness since it’s the first official korean book that i bought. knowing that im supporting the author by buying the book (even though it was on discount) brings me warm feelings.

honestly i hope to see more official works from korean authors published so they can earn a living doing what they like and if wordexcerpt just so happens to be the one to pave the way for more korean novels to become mainstream, let them take my money. i so badly want a collection of korean novels on my shelf. i just bought a new one and it’s pretty empty. only got japanese light novels and manga. would be pretty neat if we could get korean webtoons printed too. that would be pretty damn cool. if webtoon.com pulls through, i’m buying.

and this is the link for where you can buy the ebook if anyone wants it e-book link.

Easy French novels recommendations? (airport bestsellers)

As I am continuing my French journey, I am looking for French bestseller type novels (not translations). I love the Jack Ryan/Jack Reacher series in English, they have a simple vocabulary and a linear structure that is easy to follow. I am hoping someone has a similar French equivalent that they could recommend to me.

Thanks for any tips!
