It’s been less than two months since Copperfield’s Books opened the doors of its downtown San Rafael store to great fanfare, and the small North Bay indie bookstore chain has already developed quite a following.

Copperfield's has seven North Bay stores in Napa, Sonoma and Marin counties.

What have your neighbors been reading?

Copperfield’s provided Patch a list of the top 10 bestsellers at its San Rafael store. Note that since the store just opened on Nov. 11, the list reflects an unusually small sample size.
