Thoughts:

1. Gloryland came out in paperback, and Shelton joined us for a wonderful reading, so I expect that’s why it surged to #1.   It’s been selling well since the event, too.
2. What amazes me about Radanovich’s newest book being so high is that we just got it last week!
3. Huntington’s excellent book on Yosemite has been a big hit every summer, and this month is solid evidence to that claim.
4. This guide is a constant sell for us – it’s gorgeous, full of info, and easy to decipher.  Big pluses!
5. Larrson’s first book in his bestselling series continues to go strong.
6. This was mostly a customer request, but we sold a few in the store, too.
7. Leroy’s other books picked up steam thanks to his latest.
8. Lies maintains its steady pace of sells this summer.  Don’t forget that its sequel is one of our books of the month!
9. See #6.  All of his books are fascinating trips back in time!
10. A ever-popular kid’s title that is a common gift around here!
