Lindy Jones: "Abbey’s is known for its wide range of nonfiction, and our customers tend to gravitate towards less obvious titles. Crime fiction traditionally also sells well for us."

There are plenty of books that will sell nicely this year, so choosing bestsellers isn’t so obvious. Some that will probably rise above the others include:
As for surprise sellers, in a way we are never surprised at what our customers buy! They might seem quirky to other bookshops but relatively normal for Abbey’s.
But just in case you think all our sellers will be heavy and serious, there are some nice lighthearted or more entertaining titles that our customers will buy.
The new Alexander McCall Smith novel The Good Pilot Peter Woodhouse (Polygon), Sulari Gentill’s latest ‘Rowland Sinclair’ mystery A Dangerous Language (Pantera Press), Richard Fidler & Kari Gislason’s Saga Land (HarperCollins) and the delightful ‘Baby University’ board books by Chris Ferrie (Sourcebooks), which are being purchased for child and adult alike!
