Hey 2021, let me go back to 2020 to talk about the books my bookstore sold a lot of in December. K, thanks! During the last week of February 2018, I pondered about what type of post to make for “Books in Hand.” At first, I planned to discuss all the books customers came in asking for or buying, but that’s a bit too much because everybody came in asking for different books, and I didn’t remember all of them. My boss showed me a way to check our store’s best selling books, and I found out what we sold a lot of! And that’s what this post is—seeing the top selling books of December 2020!

You ever want to know what people are buying in bookstores? Well, it so happens that I work at one, and I wanted to write about what books customers have been asking for during the holiday season.

All bookstores are different, so the customers coming in ask for different things—which they shouldn’t be coming into the store because we are in shelter in place due to COVID. These are just the books the customers in my area asked for during the past week leading up to the Holidays in 2020.

This list isn’t a conclusive list; the books here are the ones that I’ve remembered because I’ve been asked about it a bazillion times or I’ve seen customers holding it.

Where did the time go? November passed by so fast, and here we are in December. But we aren’t talking about December, we’re talking about November and the books that people bought.

You know what’s even better than a book with a good story? When that book has an awesome cover!

This is not your typical YA anthology-type post where I tell you these are the books that you should get on your TBR list, no siree! (There are plenty of posts for that, so I don’t want to recycle what has already been said.)

I will present to you something that I haven’t done before—a mix of themes, so to speak. Book covers, BUT also books that have a full name in the title! I wanted to see the different titles with a full names.

Behold!
