Amazon’s Best-Selling New Releases of 2016: Critical Linking, December 8, 2016


As far as I can tell, Amazon’s top 20 best-sellers of the year includes only one author of color. The YA/kid’s list is entirely white.

According to the company’s blog post, more than 3.5 million votes were cast for this year’s awards. With 128,543 votes,  Harry Potter and the Cursed Child garnered more votes than any other nominee in the Goodreads Choice Awards’ eight year, winning in the best fantasy category.

No surprises in this year’s Goodreads Choice Awards. Big names, big marketing budgets mean big wins.

Trailer for Dave Eggers’ The Circle is here! Looks interesting.
