My apologies for missing last week’s bestseller list, the product of being busy with election and budget stories on a blog that is, after all, not my day job. The fiction bestseller for the week ended Oct. 13 was Riverlines: Poems of Time and Place Along the North Saskatchewan River by Douglas Elves, and the non-fiction bestseller was No One Is Too Small to Make a Difference by Greta Thunberg.
