Media Release: Weekly Alberta Bestseller List and changes to the Edmonton Bestseller List

Edmonton – Since January 2017, the Book Publishers Association of Alberta (BPAA) has been collaborating with Audreys Books to distribute a weekly bestseller list of fiction and non-fiction books sold in Edmonton. 

We are pleased to announce that, starting on December 6, the BPAA will release a weekly Alberta bestseller list based on sales in independent bookstores from across the province, using data provided through BookNet Canada’s SalesData service. The broadened scope of a provincial list will provide a comprehensive view of what Albertans are reading, reflecting the diversity of our province. 

Next week, we will also be expanding our Edmonton bestseller list to include sales from the newly-opened Glass Bookshop, and a dedicated top 10 poetry section.

The weekly Alberta bestseller list will be released each Friday on social media, on the BPAA website, and through various distribution outlets. The Edmonton bestseller list will continue to be released on Thursdays.
