Sarah Gelman with Amazon’s Top 20 Books of 2020

Welcome Sarah

We’re joined on the Starline by Director of Amazon Books Editorial Sarah Gelman to break down the top 20 books of 2020. Welcome Sarah.

Let’s go Beyond the Mic, Sarah you read books every day. Books, books, books, what makes a book decent, good or great enough to get onto this list?

How many books do you read at a time? Read a chapter of this, a chapter of this?

You worked for Random House as a PR Manager, what makes being part of the book selling side so different than the book promoting side?

Let’s break down some of the top books, “A Knock at Midnight: A Story of Hope, Justice and Freedom” is the # 1 book. Why did it do so well?

What’s the best children’s book that might be perfect for a gift this year? That just sounds fun?

So how does the Battle Royale of book selection to make the list happen? Do you all get on a zoom call and fight or is it a process?
