MPIBA Best-Sellers for 01/01/2018

The Wandering Hermit tries to keep many of the Mountains and Plains Independent Booksellers Association Best Sellers in stock.  We order books weekly, and we pay special attention to new books that are best sellers and also books that are about to be made into movies.  If for any reason we don’t have a best seller on hand, we are very willing to order it for you.  It generally takes 5 – 8 days to get a book in.
