SFFH on Bestseller Lists: 1 July 2001


Neil Gaiman's American Gods (Morrow) debuts strongly on lists this week, as high as #5 in San Francisco, in the top 10 on three other lists, and #45 on USA Today's combined hardcover/paperback list.

Amazonís paperback list this week includes Fahrenheit 451, 1984, and Brave New World among the top 25. Summer assigned reading, perhaps?

The table compiles SFFH books placing 15th or higher on general bestseller lists (30th or higher on the combined USA Today list). The current rank of each book and the change since last week are shown, where:
   = same as last week
   + or - with number: difference since last week
   + back on list
   ++ new on list
   x no longer on list (number of x's: weeks off list)

Columns show ranks on lists from, respectively, New York Times, Los Angeles Times, San Francisco Chronicle, USA Today, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, London Times, Publishers Weekly, BookSense, Amazon.com (fiction lists), and Amazon UK (fiction lists). All lists rank hardcovers and paperbacks separately, except for the USA Today list, which is a single list combining fiction and nonfiction in all formats. Some books are on separate general [nonfiction] lists (gen), children's lists (ch), trade paperback lists (tpb), or mass market paperback lists (mm), as indicated.
