BookNet Canada's February Bestsellers List

Books, books, books. It's no secret. The Vancouver Observer office is filled with them. They're everywhere. We've got stacks of all sizes on the floor, leaning on the walls as if to hold them up. Inside boxes and on the shelves. Sitting on tables and hanging out on chairs.
What can we say?  We're all about a good read. We work with words on the daily basis, fishing them out of hardbooks and paperbacks. 

So it was only a matter of time before we shared a list of best sellers with you. Here's BookNet Canada's bestsellers book list for February, forwarded to us by Samantha Francis, Marketing Manager. We have decided to acknowledge all Canadian authors with a striking bold.
