Unexpected Bestsellers

The term bestseller in this instance doesn’t mean on any bestseller list. It just means a book that sells REALLY well. And I’ve come across one in particular since my switch to a new section of my store. First, my new section is education and parenting. So you’ll have primary education workbooks, textbooks for teachers, all things science, and parenting.

One of the things I’ve noticed in the past is that we ALWAYS haveĀ What to Expect When You’re Expecting. People want babies, I guess. But what I didn’t realize is how many people are actually looking for it. There’s a new edition on the way, but I checked Amazon out of curiosity last night and it’s in the top 100 bestselling books on the site! Seriously.

A book that came out in 2008 and isn’t young adult. That was a bit of a surprise to me. It’s the bestselling pregnancy book on the site.

Have you ever come across a book that sold way more copies than you’d have thought?
