Our Best Seller List for October 2007
Celebrating our 17th birthday this month, Mystery Lovers saw more diversity of sales than ever. We think the 17% off a hardcover sale on Halloween may have accounted for the long list of titles. Of course, events and the Stephen Colbert phenom didn’t go without notice here either. Our customers are also starting the Holiday buying because of tighter spending of discretionary dollars and early shipping needs to families spread out over so many states.
