Always books. Never boring.

So you want to read a bestseller. You could go to just about any bookstore and pick something off the bestseller wall, but what if you want to know the book that’s selling the most across the country? Getting that answer isn’t as simple as it first appears. Every bestseller list, from the New York Times to Amazon, has its own cryptic criteria and data sources, which means they all shake out a little differently.

That’s where this list comes in. We mashed together the five biggest bestseller lists to see where they overlap to get a bird’s eye view of the biggest books of the moment. To get these numbers, we look at the USA Today overall top 10; Publishers Weekly overall top 10; the New York Times top 10, both Combined Print & E-Book Fiction and Combined Print & E-Book Nonfiction lists; Amazon Charts top 10, both Fiction and Nonfiction; and Indie Bestsellers top 10, Fiction and Nonfiction, both Paperback and Hardcover. New additions to the list this week are bolded.

This list continues to have a lack of diversity on many levels, including being disproportionately by white authors. Some new releases you should know about are The Fraud by Zadie Smith ️and Creep: Accusations and Confessions by Myriam Gurba.
