This week represents a work week one-day shorter than normal. By mid-week, people stopped the rush to get books for the holidays, so we had a tilt towards the preorders that came in. Teatro Grottesco had heavy preorders and easily kept Tim Powers from taking what seems like a regular top-spot anytime something new comes out. Carnival had a lot of Christmas gift orders to keep it sailing smoothly in the top 5.
Nothing too unusual with the magazine sales. A few big back-issue orders brought Weird Tales back up into the mix and Realms seemed to have a stronger than normal week. Several magazines sent us new issues that week and I’m still getting those listed now that the store is open again.
