2009 Bestsellers at Broadway Books

The Pulitzer-Prize-winning novel-in-short-stories Olive Kitteridge, by Elizabeth Strout, topped the list of bestselling books at Broadway Books in 2009. The list of our top 25 bestselling titles includes 18 novels and 3 memoirs and seems heavily influenced by book clubs and our staff favorites.
