Bestsellers: Makin’ Moves
Hot off the presses, we’ve got the books that are flying off shelves at independent bookstores nationwide. (Click here to see the entire lists)
First up, books with pictures:
“Where the Wild Things Are” climbs up to #2, while “Oh The Places You’ll Go” drops down to #14 after it’s annual graduation gift bump into the top spot. By the way, “Fancy Nancy” occupies five of the top ten positions. That’s 5 of 10. Also called “half”.
“The Book Thief” breaks up the “Wimpy Kid” reign in the top two spots. Also climbing is “Despereaux”. If I was a betting man (all time casino winnings: -$15.50) I would guess this is due to the fact that the trailer for the upcoming “Despereaux” movie debuted before WALL*E.
