For the week of Jan 16-22
1. City Baby L.A. by Lisa Rocchio

Since the list is mainly composed of non-fiction, we suspect that the list is actually just a collection of titles containing the key word "Los Angeles," rather than an analysis of what books people from LA actually purchased.

Nice try Amazon marketing mavens, but we're not fooled.
