USA Today Bestsellers, 9/25

Bookstores must be setting up their Halloween book displays; Five Little Pumpkins is back on the USA Today bestseller list (#137).

Of course, the BIG new title of the week is Christopher Paolini’s Brsingr, which hits the list at #1, after only a single day on sale (USA Today‘s list reflects sales through the previous Sunday. The book was released on Saturday).

Unsurprisingly, libraries are showing heavy reserves, but they have also ordered in quantity. Congrats Hennepin, you seem to have the most reserves, with 971 on 98 copies.
