The holidays are here, and I thought I’d look back at the year and highlight our customers’ varied interests. Here are the top sellers so far this year:

Girl on the Train

by Paula Hawkins
This suspenseful mystery was heralded as a Gone Girl-style thriller, and our customers continue to rave about it.

Mindfulness Coloring Book: Anti-Stress Art Therapy for Busy People

by Emma Farrarons
You’ve heard about the adult coloring book trend, and how relaxing and Zen-like it can be, and this pocketsize workbook has been the perfect fit for our customers.

Go Set a Watchman

by Harper Lee
Lee’s second book, a sort of alternate timeline version of To Kill a Mockingbird, found great success earlier this year, and no surprise: Who wouldn’t want to read more about Scout and Atticus Finch?

111 Places in San Francisco that You Must not Miss

by Floriana Peterson
Rounding out our eclectic best sellers is this wondrously crafted guide to San Francisco and its environs; our home city benefits from an original viewpoint of how to process and see the city by the bay.

Very popular with locals and tourists alike!
