* * *Interested in hearing which children's books were selling well here in Western Washington, I spoke with a bookseller from Eagle Harbor Book Company. (Hi, Victoria!) She was super helpful, and she provided me with the list of children's books they sold the most of last week. Guess what! Two Friends-o-the-Blog made the list!
THE SNIFFLES FOR BEAR by Bonny Becker
EVERY THING ON IT by Shel Silverstein
MOCKINGJAY (Hunger Games #3) by Suzanne Collins
GOLIATH by Scott Westerfeld (Ooh! See my last post!)
BIG NATE ON A ROLL by Lincoln Peirce
POWER OF SIX (Lorien Legacies #2) by Pittacus Lore
BUMBLE-ARDY by Mauice Sendak
THE STORY OF FERDINAND by Munro Leaf
GOOD NIGHT, GOOD KNIGHT by Shelley Moore Thomas (Yay, Shelley!)
RABBIT'S GIFT by George Shannon (Yay, George!)
INFINITY (Chronicles of Nick #1) by Sherrilyn Kenyon
THE ABSOLUTELY TRUE DIARY OF A PART-TIME INDIAN by Sherman Alexie
Eagle Harbor Book Company sells all sorts of books--not just children's--though the children's sections are my faves. They also host super cool readings. Two upcoming West Sound Reads events:
*Maggie Stiefvater will be reading from THE SCORPIO RACES on Monday, October 10, at 7:00 p.m. The event will be held at the North Kitsap Community Auditorium in Poulsbo, Washington.
*Christopher Paolini will be at the Commons at Bainbridge High School on Monday, November 28, at 7:00 p.m. He'll be reading from INHERITANCE.
In the comments, feel free to plug an independent bookstore you love! Also, what are you reading now? I'm finally reading THE HELP by Kathryn Stockett.
Note: I won't be posting next weekend, but I will the following weekend.
