Bestselling Books in 2017

So we took a look at what sold last year and this is what we saw.  Our Top 10 bestsellers were...


1.   Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls by Elena Favilli & Francesca Cavallo 2.   The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k by Mark Manson 3.   Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur 4.   Tinkering by (the late and great) John Clarke 5.   The Sun and Her Flowers by Rupi Kaur 6.   Grungewick by Michael Winkler 7.   The Ministry of Utmost Happiness by Arundahti Roy 8.   Quarterly Essay: Moral Panic 101 by Benjamin Law 9.   How Not To Be A Boy by Robert Webb 10. Punk Girls by Liz Ham

It was no surprise that Good Night Stories For Rebel Girls took the #1 spot.  It featured heavily on our bestsellers' lists throughout the year.  What was more interesting was that only one fiction title made the list and the heavy presence of non-fiction books with a socio-political bent (gosh, we love you Brunswick).
We know that poetry had a strong upswing of interest generally, and certainly Rupi Kaur had a lot to do with that…
