November in Review

Did you miss a post this month? Here’s everything we’ve featured since our October in Review post – just click on the image to be directed to the post!

Unique This Month

We’re already in the holiday mood this month at Towne! Check out all of our staff holiday gift giving recommendations! We’ve separated them into the following categories, or you can click on the image above to see them all!

Wondering what books our booksellers loved the most this year? There were so many to choose from and we all agonized over which one was truly the best we read, but we managed to make some decisions and this is definitely one of the best lists compared to previous years!

Oprah recently shared the books that got her through the struggles and anxiety of this year. Many are books that we have sold numerous copies of over the years and we think it’s a wonderful list that will help anyone looking to try to make sense of this crazy year.

This is one of our favorites – every holiday season, the ABA’s, the American Booksellers Association’s, member booksellers (the same people who do the Indie Next List, us!) put together their own holiday gift giving guide! Some of the included books are also TBC staff favorites as well!

Wondering which books have sold best at Towne Book Center this year? Look no further than our latest round of Towne Bestsellers!

Two years ago, Michelle Obama’s Becoming was the number one holiday seller here at Towne, and nationwide. We’re hoping to see the same folks turn out for Barack’s hotly anticipated memoir. But in addition to his A Promised Land, we included some of our staff favorite memoirs from his own staff, as well as books by the president- and vice president-elect!

The end of the year and the holiday season inspire us to make so many “best of” and “best selling” lists! For this one we looked at all of the different books our staff members picked as staff picks for the year and determined which ones sold best!

Staff Features

While this month we just have posts from Marielle and Sarah, it’s because there will be MULTIPLE posts from each staff member for the holidays in December! Click on the image for each post to see their contributions for this month and click on their names to see all the posts they’ve written so far!

This month the store celebrated it’s 30th anniversary and our manager, Sarah, has written a post about what she loves best about Towne, and her hopes for it’s future.

Marielle is sharing some of her favorite magical realism middle grade books this month!
