Elimination of local arts news coverage in Edmonton newspapers means the Audreys Books weekly bestseller list has found itself without a home.

As a result, my colleague Dave Cournoyer at Daveberta.ca and I were delighted to offer Audreys Books and the Book Publishers Association of Alberta a home on our blogs for the weekly Edmonton Bestseller List so that this important information will continue to be provided to Edmonton readers.

Here is the first installment, compiled on Dec. 4 and showing the top 10 fiction and non-fiction titles sold in Edmonton the previous week.
