KEY

The table shows the current rank of each book and the change since last week, where:

= same as last week

+/- change since last week

+ back on list

++ new on list

x no longer on list (number of x's: weeks off list)


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. Dates shown are posted dates, except those in parentheses, which are dates compiled. New York Times posts its list one week in advance of print publication.

Note that some sources do not compile paperback bestsellers, and some exclude YA books (like the Harry Potter series) from their hardcover and paperback fiction lists.

Weekly Bestellers


Week ending 2 March 2010


Joe Hill's Horns (William Morrow) debuts strongly this week, ranking #10 on the fiction hardcover lists from New York Times and Publishers Weekly, and #93 on the combined USA Today list.

Jonathan Maberry's film novelization The Wolfman (Tor) squeaks onto the extended NYT mass market paperback list, in 35th place.

And Garth Nix's final "Keys to the Kingdom" YA novel, Lord Sunday, ranks today on Amazon.uk's list, a couple days before official publication.
