Indie Bestseller List

We’ve just added the Indie Bestsellers to our links (see list at right). Created by the American Bookseller Association, the list reflects sales in independent bookstores nationwide.

The Indie list sometimes includes titles you don’t see everywhere else. This week, for instance, Goodnight Bush: An Unauthorized Parody debuts at #9 on the Hardcover Nonfiction list (the only other list it appears on is the San Francisco Chronicle Non-fiction at #7).

Goodnight Bush: A Parody

Gan Golan and Erich Origen

  • Hardcover: $14.99
  • Publisher: Little, Brown, (May 27, 2008)
  • ISBN-10: 031604041X
  • ISBN-13: 9780316040419

The SF Chronicle‘s recent review says, Goodnight Bush stands to become a popular American political parody.” How could it not, with lines like these:

Goodnight Constitution

And goodnight evolution …

Goodnight contractor beheading

Goodnight innocent bloodshedding …

The Indie lists adds valuable perspective on what customers are seeking. Thanks to Barbara Genco, Collection Development Director for Brooklyn Public (my local library), for the suggesting we add it.
