Top 5 Best-Selling Books — Week Of October 30, 2012

This week's 5 best-selling books as compiled by The Onion Book Review:

  3. The Complete Guide To Personal Finance Tamsen Butler (Atlantic, $13.95) Your dad meant well when he gave you this.
  4. The Hairstylist With Pudding Hands Lucy McCallum (Penguin, $17.95) The hairstylist doesn’t really have pudding hands, but by the time the phrase comes up in the book, it makes sense.
  5. Guinness World Records 2013 Guinness World Records (Guinness World Records, $28.95) Huh, looks like Lou from Legal really did make the world’s largest falafel.
