Face it--the New York Times and the San Francisco Chronicle bestseller lists are interesting, but do they reflect what Sonomans read?  Here's a compliation of what sold the most copies throughout 2017.  Keep in mind that some of these books came out early in the year (All the Light came in paperback in January) while others arrived at the end of the year (Leonardo da Vinci in October) this list has its limitations too.
