2013 Best Sellers for the Store

I enjoy doing this list every year. When I run the report I ask for everything that we sell in the store but for the purposes of this post I only list books. Most of you won’t care that our number one best seller was Lindor Truffles (over 5,000 sold!) although it makes our gift buyer very happy. We also sold 485 “Little People Christmas Nativity” sets and 576 boxes of gluten-free communion. This is also the only best seller list that I provide sales numbers. Two of these (Emotions and Game Changer) are on the list no doubt due to events we had with the authors. We had Charles Stanley in the store and we had two events with Kirk Cousins (one in-store and one at his home church in Holland). Jesus Calling continues to be a strong seller and shows up twice in this list under two editions. The astute observer will notice that eight out of ten of the list are from Thomas Nelson and Zondervan which are now both under the umbrella of HarperCollins Christian Publishing. With all that out of the way here’s the list.

    Where would Jesus Calling as a title placed if you added the two different editions together?

    If we combine the sales Jesus Calling would be #2. I’ve done this in years past but decided to separate them this year.
