Top 20 Best-Sellers for October!

Curious to see what was flying off the shelves this past month? Wondering what you should add to your reading list for this month? Here's our list of October's top 20 best-selling books, plus the top five best-selling magazines to help you out.

At the head of the pack, taking number one spot is D+Q-published Rookie Yearbook 2, by the incomparable Tavi Gevinson. Loaded with goodies, including stickers, tarot cards and more interviews and contributions from awesome folks than you can shake a stick at!

Next up, in second place is Emily Southwood's Prude, a memoir chronicling her complicated relationship with the 'adult entertainment' industry - an industry with which she found herself becoming rather familiar after her husband got a job filming on porn sets for reality TV. Her launch at D+Q was an overwhelming success, and we were so happy to have her.

Coming in third is The Wes Anderson Collection by Matt Zoller Seitz. A genuine compendium of all-things Anderson, with a chapter devoted to each of his seven films, this book has been a fan favourite for good reason. The level of detail and diversity of the ephemera compiled therein is remarkable.

In the fourth spot we've got Nobel Prize winner, Alice Munro's Dear Life. A fine collection of extraordinary short stories from one of Canada's best and most highly esteemed writers. Nobel Prize. 'Nuff said!

Laying claim to the fifth place title is The Interestings, by Meg Wolitzer. This novel follows a group of adolescents who meet at a summer arts camp and forge a friendship which endures the trials and tribulations of their respective artistic successes and failures throughout their adult lives.
