History books big online sellers for shut-ins

People staying “Safer at Home” are keeping Novel Bay Booksellers of Sturgeon Bay going through online sales, especially since the store is closed.  Shut-ins are also spending their time looking into past challenges to help with present circumstances.  Liz Welter, co-owner of Novel Bay Booksellers, says the best selling book through her website is “The Splendid and The Vile” by Erik Larson, which profiles Winston Churchill and his efforts to rally British citizens during World War II.




Welter also says children and teen books are selling well online.  She says Novel Bay Booksellers set up its website just before the “Safer at Home” order was given for non-essential businesses, like hers, to close until further notice.
