Hi Jamie,

Yep, that's the website I start at. I look at the top 10 books in
Hardcover Fiction,
Hardcover Nonfiction,
Paperback Trade Fiction,
Paperback Mass-Market Fiction, and
Paperback Nonfiction.
I ignore the Hardcover and Paperback Advice Books, the Hardcover and Paperback 
Business Books, and Graphic Books lists.

I'll file a ticket with Engineering to create a kiddie bestseller list, and 
start creating a list of which books I need to get. The outsourcers get a 
couple hundred books each week, so adding in a few more won't be difficult.

There are thousands of lists of books. It would be easy to have someone working 
on special collections full-time. Maybe I should suggest at the next Collection 
Development meeting, run the idea up the flagpole and see if anyone salutes... 
First though, we'd need the ability to create special collections ourselves 
rather than relying on Engineering. I'm just musing, don't think that this is 
imminent! It would be months off if it ever does come to pass.

I just sometimes go to:
and see what the bestsellers are from there. Where do you get your list from? I 
would like to see all of the other types of children's lists.
Special collection lists are so much fun!
My library has some lists of special collections lists that I like to check out
