You ever want to know what people are buying in bookstores? Well, it so happens that I work at one!

During the last week of February 2018, I pondered about what type of post to make for “Books in Hand.” At first, I planned to discuss all the books customers came in asking for or buying, but that’s a bit too much because everybody came in asking for different books, and I didn’t remember all of them. My boss showed me a way to check our store’s best selling books, and I found out what we sold a lot of!

And that’s what this post is—seeing the top ten selling books of March 2019.

Music in 2018 was filled with Arctic Monkeys, KPOP, and superhero movie soundtracks. Nothing else really.

With every passing year, I seem to be listening less and less albums, and more KPOP singles. To be fair though, a lot of my favorite artists didn’t release new albums this year, so I replayed a bunch of things I’ve listened to in the past—the xx, KPOP, and son so on.

Here are the albums I listened to. (It is in order of when I listened to them, and the links go to Spotify.)

ARCTIC MONKEYS | Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino

Arctic Monkeys are an English indie rock band formed in 2002 in High Green, a suburb of Sheffield. The band consists of Alex Turner, Jamie Cook, Nick O’Malley, and Matt Helders.1 Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino is their sixth studio album. 

I’ve waited five long years for a new Arctic Monkeys album. I’ve spent these past years playing AM because that album is fucking iconic. There isn’t a time I’m not replaying it because y’know it’s my favorite album of all time.

Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino is so far from what you think is Arctic Monkey’s sound. It’s experimental, and takes on this loungey pop sound that works so beautifully. It’s odd—lyrics are very rambly—but it works well with this atmosphere Arctic Monkeys have conjured up with this album. The music sounds very futuristically-70s. I love it.
