Top Ten

We started ordering new books for customers in 2005, and for shelf stock in mid-2007. As of this morning, we have around 1400 different new titles on the shelves. All our new books are 20% off Canadian cover price, and are a mix of books that we get asked for every day, books that we've read and liked ourselves or that friends of the store have recommended to us, or books that looked really appealing in a publisher's catalog.

Just for fun, here's our current top ten best sellers of all time:

1. Watchmen, by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons
2. Blood Meridian, by Cormac McCarthy
3. Eat Pray Love, by Elizabeth Gilbert
4. The Road, by Cormac McCarthy
5. The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle, by Haruki Murakami
6. Post Office, by Charles Bukowski
7. Three Cups of Tea, by Greg Mortenson
8. The Omnivore's Dilemma, by Michael Pollan
9. World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War, by Max Brooks
10. Shantaram, by Gregory David Roberts
