December 2011 Bestsellers & Hottest Pre-Orders Updated

Our apologies on the delay getting the December 2011 lists up.  We were just swamped over the past few days, but have now managed to update everything.  As always, here’s November’s 2011’s information as a record and comparison.

Following is the Bestseller’s list for the month of November 2011. We’ve excluded any accessories and any pre-orders from this list to provide an idea of ranking for in-stock items.
