Publisher's Weekly Best Sellers

Every week we will update the Publisher's Weekly Best Sellers list on this page. We switched from New York Times to Publisher's Weekly due to research done by other libraries and publishing houses showing that the New York Times has not been using purchase data to create their lists - instead, editors hand pick the titles for the New York Times Best Sellers List. The titles with an asterisk (*) before them are part of our collection. The others need to be requested from another library. Some titles have two asterisks, this signifies a title only available on e-book (OverDrive or our NOOKs with Preloaded Books). A title with three asterisks before it means it is only available as an audiobook. 

The titles are connected to links, if you would like to be placed on hold or request the book just click on the link and choose "Request" at the top of  the catalog page!
