In these weekly bestseller summaries, we look at the biggest bestseller lists – the New York Times, both combined print and ebook fiction and combined print and ebook nonfiction lists; Amazon charts, fiction and non-fiction; and Publishers Weekly – and combine the results for a snapshot of the best-selling books of the moment. Each list uses its own criteria and dates. So by looking at the overlaps, we can get a better picture of the bestsellers overall.
For the second straight week, USA Today’s bestseller list is not included as it is indefinitely paused. The editor who compiled the list was fired, and now their future is uncertain. Right now, “all lists” are Amazon, NYT, and Publishers Weekly only.
We’re officially on the publishing winter break and for the first time there are no new additions to this list from last week, although some have fallen off the list and some have changed positions. As usual, a very white bestseller list, with the exception of Michelle Obama’s new book.
For some new releases that deserve a lot more attention, see A Million to One by Adiba Jaigirdar and A Death in Tokyo by Keigo Higashino, translated by Giles Murray.
