Topix.net will give local news for any zipcode in the US. For Accord, NY it gives the following best-seller list:
1. Wolves of the Calla by Stephen King
2. Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them
3. Living to Tell the Tale by Edith Grossman
4. Life of Pi by Yann Martel
5. Dude, Where's My Country? by Michael Moore
