SPD’s October Best-Sellers List

By Harriet Staff


It looks like book buyers in October were lifting some serious poetry, according to our friends at SPD. Their best-sellers list is now live, here. Things are looking great these days for Krupskaya, what with two new editors on board and owning the top two best-seller spots this month. Also of note is Ahsahta Press with three titles in the top 20. Not a bad showing!
