Is this a solution for the parents in Go the Fuck to Sleep?
  • Is this a solution for the parents in Go the Fuck to Sleep?

Here's your weekly St. Louis bestseller list for the week ending July 3, as compiled by the St. Louis Independent Booksellers Alliance and based on sales at Left Bank Books, Main Street Books, Pudd'nhead Books, Subterranean Books and Sue's News.

If only the books on the bestseller list could talk to one another. Would the friends of Sisterhood Everlasting (aka the Traveling Pants crew, all grown up) be able to teach the women of The Help how to bond, even though some are white and some are black and they all are stuck in 1960s Mississippi? Does Area 51 provide a clue to what happened in The Lost Summer of Louisa May Alcott? (There's a fresh premise for the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies people: Little Women Abducted by Aliens.)

And maybe, just maybe, a solution for the horrible moral conundrums of Go the Fuck to Sleep lies in The Art of Barter: How to Trade for Almost Anything. Or is going the fuck to sleep one of the things excluded by "almost"?

Full lists after the jump:
