Wake is Bakka-Phoenix's top selling hardcover for 2009

Bakka-Phoenix Books, Toronto's science-fiction specialty bookstore (and the oldest extant SF bookstore in the world), has just released their list of the bestselling books for the entire year of 2009:

Hardcover Bestsellers
  1. Wake, Robert J. Sawyer
  2. Makers, Cory Doctorow
  3. Enchantment Emporium, Tanya Huff
  4. Unseen Academicals, Terry Pratchett
  5. Give Up the Ghost, Megan Crewe

Trade Paperback Bestsellers
  1. Wondrous Strange, Lesley Livingston
  2. Black Man, Richard Morgan
  3. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Jane Austen & Seth Grahame-Smith
  4. Cast in Silence, Michelle Sagara
  5. Alex and the Ironic Gentleman, Adrienne Kress

Mass Market Bestsellers
  1. Ages of Wonder, Julie E. Czerneda & Robert St. Martin, eds.
  2. Name of the Wind, Patrick Rothfuss
  3. Anathem, Neal Stephenson
  4. On the Edge, Ilona Andrews
  5. Tyrant, Christian Cameron
Not quite as good as 2003 when I had the #1 hardcover (Humans) and the #1 mass-market paperback (Hominids), but it still makes me happy. (I also had the #1 bestselling hardcover for the entire year in 2007, for Rollback.)

Bakka-Phoenix is located at 697 Queen Street West in downtown Toronto.

I listened to this book for the
second time last weekend and laughed all over again when Caitlin said Shannon entropy sounded like a porn star.

The book is great and deserves to be a top seller.
