The Bestselling Books of the Week, According to All the Lists
Welcome to this week’s bestselling books! This is the feature where we take a look at the biggest bestsellers lists to see where the overlap is — surprisingly, they can vary quite a bit. This week looks very similar to the last two. The only new addition (bolded) is not a new release, but a book that’s been just shy of the top ten for a while and has resurfaced: Braiding Sweetgrass by Robin Wall Kimmerer.
To get these numbers, we look at the New York Times, both Combined Print & E-Book Fiction and Combined Print & E-Book Nonfiction lists; Amazon Charts, both Fiction and Nonfiction; Publishers Weekly; and Indie Bestsellers, Fiction and Nonfiction, both Paperback and Hardcover.
As usual, this list is disproportionately by white authors. For a book that didn’t quite make this list but is getting a lot of buzz on bookish social media, check out Before the Coffee Gets Cold by Toshikazu Kawaguchi, which is on the Indie Bestsellers list.
