What's Selling in Books and Non-Books? John Irving and Recycled Coin Purses.

Here are our latest hardcover fiction bestsellers:

1. The Gathering Storm, by Robert Jordan
2. Last Night in Twisted River, by John Irving
3. Wild Things (fur-covered version), by Dave Eggers
4. Half-Broke Horses, by Jeannette Walls
5. A Gate at the Stairs, by Lorrie Moore
6. The Lost Symbol, by Dan Brown
7. The Help, by Katherine Stockett
8. Chronic City, by Jonathan Lethem
9. Her Fearful Symmetry, by Audrey Niffenegger
10. The Children’s Book, by A. S. Byatt

And in sidelines (or what we call nonbook on the inside), we've finally got a few things selling besides our wooden robots, which we still have, but just a warning, the distributor ran out of stock. We've got more on backorder, but who knows when they'll arrive? If you were putting off your purchase till closer to the holidays, I might reconsider.

1. Recycled coin purses--we're currently out of Super Robot Mom but we've still got Robot Team, Birds, Bees, Flower Stamp, and Travel Girl. After we sold so many of our initial order, I went back for a bunch more. If you're obsessed with Super Robot Mom, we still offer her as a water bottle, journal, and greeting card. She's like your mom, only with more circuits!

2. Resin birds--the stars of our bird table, despite the enthusiasm for our tweeting bird alarm clock. Once again, we went back for more and I'm thrilled to say they were in stock. Part of the appeal is that like the purses ($4.50), the birds are a nice price ($3.95).
