Weekly Bestsellers, 21 November


Stephen King’s 11/22/63 debuts solidly in 1st place on three print lists this week, those at NY Times, Washington Post, and Publishers Weekly, and placing 2nd on the combined USA Today list. (Look for it on LAT‘s list, always a week behind the others, next week.)

Also significantly debuting is Brandon Sanderson’s The Alloy of Law (Tor), ranking as high as #7 on the NYT and PW lists.
