September 2022: These are the current stern bestsellers of the month

It is a bit surprising that so many people still buy "real" reading material despite increasing digitization. On the other hand, it is also a good sign that so many readers still appreciate a good book. For this reason, you can now find the stern orderers for the print editions, which are published every Thursday, online. Here are the fiction and nonfiction bestsellers for September 2022.

The 55-year-old from North Carolina graduated from the tough school of unscrupulous storytelling: he worked as a real estate agent, waiter, telephone salesman and even as a pharmaceutical salesman before he wrote his first best-selling novel. Today, with 120 million books sold, he is one of the most widely read authors in the world and follows closely on the heels of the authors of the Holy Scriptures. All of the novels by the father of five and a committed Catholic deal with the eternal themes of family and redemption through love – how beautiful, actually. So if you'd rather read about corrupt pharmaceutical salespeople, hypocritical waiters, fraudulent telephone salespeople, or downright lying real estate agents, you'll have to look elsewhere for entertainment on this bestseller list. Here is the book.

We would also have something to say about Thilo Sarrazin, but that's exactly why we choose this week's other newcomer. In truth, an old acquaintance of course, a downright classic of diet literature, which obviously always booms when people a) start the new year with good resolutions or b) come home from vacation with two kilos more and failed, but still are not desperate enough for intermittent fasting. Güldane Altekrüger always seems to have the right solution ready: cake for breakfast, quark sticks as a snack, Kraftbrot for lunch... Oh, lines are already full, Sarrazin ignored, done. Here is the book.

dwarf throwing. Miniature Pinscher. dwarf king. If everything is no longer appropriate, no one dares to say it out loud. But writing one novel after another about dwarfs, that's allowed, isn't it? Yes, apparently Markus Heitz from Zweibrücken in the Palatinate allows himself that. In volume seven of his fantasy saga, the little boy Goïmron has to deal with a swamp witch and the boss of the orcs, it also gets a bit romantic. In the end, of course, the smallest are the biggest, which is really unfair in the long run and raises a deep psychological question: What is behind the fact that a 50-year-old, 1.89 meter tall giant and ex-owner of an Irish pub has been obsessive for two decades busy with little ones? Did someone fall short from an early age? Here is the book.

Almost all of us remember the C64 and the Atari, but do you also remember the "Schneider CPC"? A home computer, "powered by a Z80A with a full 4 MHz", as author Gregor Kartsios tells us in his anthology of video game culture, once again asking us why highly intelligent people so often dive into nerd worlds. A look at the subsequent rank in this list may provide an answer. Because it gives an idea of ​​how good it is for the smarter ones in particular to refuse to face reality and flee into the digital world – in other words, to be completely unreasonable. Here is the book.

On March 22, 2001, J.K. Rowling, who was not yet writing novels under the pen name Galbraith, met Queen Elizabeth II for the first time. The meeting of the giants took place at the offices of the publishing house Bloomsbury in London. Although the Queen was curtseyed by the author, she looks grumpy in the resulting photos. Did she suspect that the inventor of Harry Potter would not overtake her in the ranking of the richest Britons two years later? And how hard must it have hit her that the role of the Queen in the new season of "The Crown" is played by Imelda Staunton, who once terrified Hogwarts as Headmaster Dolores Umbridge? So, now you, dear readers, have learned nothing but nonsense again, right? Here is the book.

Another book has made it into this list that wants to show us how things could work with a better world. The sustainability expert Maja Göpel knows what she is talking about. And you keep wanting to say: That's right, that's how it could work. If everyone participates and makes an effort. But a look at the TV news shows that the world is very different right now. Göpel writes: "It's time that we - each one of us, but also society as a whole - allow ourselves to think anew, to dream and ask a radical question: Who do we want to be?" But maybe that's just the second question. Maybe the first one should be: Are we in the West finally ready to give up? Here is the book.

"Dragon Banner" is the seventh part of the Waringham series by the author Gablé, whose real name is Ingrid Krane-Müschen, who comes from Mönchengladbach-Wickrath and also the Helmsby series, the Otto the Great series, various solo novels and wrote crime novels. The publisher has now dedicated an opulent website to the 25th anniversary of the Waringham saga. Interested readers can then do an "epoch test" to find out in which century they would have felt particularly comfortable. Our result: it would have been the 14th century when “you too thrived in England’s heyday”. Well, a bush cold and wet maybe, thirteen-something up there in England. Although... There was still firewood back then, wasn't there? Here is the book.

Ulrike Herrmann became known for recently explaining to entrepreneur Frank Thelen at Markus Lanz's how it actually works, what he does there every day. So economy. Thelen had claimed that inflation was caused by politicians printing too much money. Herrmann argued that inflation was due to rising energy prices. And struck out for the fatal blow: "I'm not surprised that you went broke so often." In her new book, she evokes the end of capitalism. Karl Marx already did that. The problem with this damn capitalism: It's like Frank Thelen. Maybe he'll drive something against the wall for a moment. But so far he has unfortunately always come back. Here is the book.

Master is presenting a fairy tale this time. And – as always with King – you quickly get caught up in this fantastic story about 17-year-old Charlie Reade, who takes a journey to another, strange world. Stephen King has just turned 75, and he has hardly let up as an author. Perhaps one can say that his late work no longer has the great narrative impact that made classics like "It" or "The Cemetery of Cuddly Animals" so special. King was an event in the 80's. Everyone read their novels. Today there are other pioneers, but King just keeps going. And he still has it, that unbelievable ease with which he creates characters and fills them with life in just a few sentences. There aren't many who can do it as well as he does. Long live the King! Here is the book.

What Vince Ebert writes about the energy transition makes you think, especially since the cabaret artist studied physics. In an interview, he said that climate protection hadn't brought anything so far, so it was out of the question to continue "spending money on an ineffective strategy," if only because of the "limited financial resources." One could now find that these could also be distributed and used differently. But Ebert advocates adaptation instead of climate protection. Just like Bangladesh is already doing, "in the form of dams and dikes." Which confirms a statement from our school days that you don't necessarily have to follow some physicists everywhere. And meanwhile prefer to stay on our star. Here is the book.
