December Marketing Research

I raised a few eyebrows at Barnes & Noble and Books-A-Million on Friday. I carried my camera throughout each store and took lots of pictures. It was suspicious behavior for a shopper, but I had to see which books were being featured this holiday season...

My focus was on picture books, but you’ll see a few other genres in the mix. Here’s the Christmas rundown. First stop, Books-A-Million:


Merry Christmas, Splat by Rob Scotton
(Russell's Christmas Magic is another great book by this author.)

A Christmas Carol by Brett Helquist

Love it!


The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsburg

Santa Claus by Rod Green
(Secret info about Santa, flaps, fold-outs, and memorabilia.)


That's Good! That's Bad! on Santa's Journey
Margery Cuyler; illustrations by Michael Garland

(Michael Garland is a favorite!)

More fun books!

And one aisle over, I picked up this catchy title:

Feliz Navidad
Jose Feliciano; illustrations by David Diaz

Remember the song?

Stay tuned for Part II...
