Weekly Bestsellers, 28 November


Stephen King’s 11/22/63 remains the highest-ranking genre books on lists this week, though there are several debuts, including a Star Wars novel by Drew Karpyshyn, The Old Republic: Revan, ranking 12th on PW fiction hardcover list, and The Exegesis of Philip K. Dick, ranking 10th on the LA Times nonfiction hardcover list.

Note that no new New York Times list has been posted this week. The paper usually posts its bestseller lists a week in advance, so its December 4th list should have been available this weekend.

Update 4 December — the NYT list was posted late, and has now been incorporated into the table below.
