The best-selling books of the week (January 20, 2018)

The greatest deeds and the most unusual records have always been quoted in the publishing market and in the favor of the readers. This week's non-fiction lists reflect this, where on one side we see the 'Guinness World Records 2018' well located and, on the other -in the Catalan ranking-, the chronicles (full of photographs) of two exceptional mountaineers stand out: ' Summits of my life 'explained by Kilian Jornet himself and' Els 14 vuitmils d'Òscar Cadiach i Puig ', synthesized by F. Joan i Matas. In fiction there is a significant novelty: John le Carré enters with force both in Castilian and Catalan with 'The legacy of the spies', the last (and final) adventure of Smiley, that character created by the British teacher and that takes half a century magnetizing his followers. -S.C.
