Brilliant Books: Your Quirky Christmas Connoisseur

Tuesday, December 22nd, 2015 - Aimee Jodoin

The chances of us having a White Christmas are getting slimmer and slimmer. It looks like we're having a Weird Christmas instead! Our top three hardcover non-fiction bestsellers this week show the fun taste Brilliant Books shoppers have---or at least the people they're shopping for do! These three books are quirky, smart, and representative of the lovely literary senses of our holiday gift-givers. They may be unique (i.e. weird), but they are brilliant just the same.
