Your Weekly St. Louis Bestseller List

Posted By on Mon, Dec 3, 2012 at 6:00 AM


Here's your weekly St. Louis bestseller list for the week ending November 25, as compiled by the St. Louis Independent Booksellers Alliance and based on sales at Left Bank Books, Main Street Books, Pudd'nhead Books and Subterranean Books.

This week's bestseller list proves that Cardinals baseball and Budweiser are two unstoppable forces in this town. But for this week, at least, we like to hear nice things about the Cardinals (in the form of Tony La Russa's memoir One Last Strike) over nasty things about the Busch family (William Knoedelseder's Bitter Brew).

Over on the kids' list, Elemental, local author Antony John's venture into Apoco-lit, makes its debut at number nine.
