A German Truck Stop: Nora Roberts topping the bestseller list

I understand that Nora Roberts writes some high-quality romance novels. Apparently Germans agree. Here's a photo of the bestseller list atop a display of novels at a truck stop. Writing as J.D. Robb, Roberts has the #4 spot, and in her own name she has #9.

It was fun to stop at a truck stop during a road trip. This was the only time we did this during our Koblenz exchange program trip. Highway driving and the truck stop seemed very much like at home, except for this notable difference:  one truck stop contained a coffee counter staffed by a barista who made cappuccino and lattes, and we stopped there to drink a cup, not getting it to go. The whole counter looked like it had been excised from a picturesque cafe and dropped whole into the truck stop.
