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 books customers are asking will be different. This holiday season have exhausted me (to the point that I forgot about my blogoversary, oops). These are just the books the customers at my bookstore asked for during the past week leading up to the Holidays in 2022.
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.

(Any titles with the asterisk* are books that we didn’t have in stock because they sold out before.)
I’m sure I’m forgetting a lot of books that people asked for. Like all years, the holiday season was super busy, and my bones are exhausted. (I need to slumber for a while.)
