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 16 March 2010


Seth Grahame-Smith's Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (Grand Central), solo follow-up to the author's Jane Austen update Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, debuts impressively this week, ranking #4 on the fiction hardcover lists from New York Times and Publishers Weekly.

Also cracking the NYT list this week is Anne Bishop's Shalador's Lady (Roc), ranking #16, and Tad Williams' Shadowrise (DAW), ranking #33

In paperback, the mass market reprint of Jim Butcher's Turn Coat (Roc), places 12th on both the NYT and PW mass market lists. And paperback original Roadkill by Rob Thurman (also Roc) places 35th on the NYT list.
