So it's that time of year again; the nights are drawing in and Christmas is looming on the horizon. The book stores are packed with would-be Yuletide gifts and culinary skills are being brushed up right across the land. Despite the mass release of this year's Christmas range, it's unsurprising to see Walter Isaacson's biography of Steve Jobs at the top of the charts. Beyond that the Winter stock doesn't seem to have started moving just yet, the top ten still featuring long stays like The Hunger Games, Diary of a Wimpy Kid:  Cabin Fever, and Inheritance. The Best of Me and The Litigators, a couple of good reads for the cold, long evenings, bounce into the top ten, accompanied by Boomerang and Killing Lincoln - weighter prospects all round.
