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 5 July 2011


No debuts this week either. The only author ranking #1 anywhere this week is George R.R. Martin, who continues to dominate backlist and forthcoming rankings with the numerous volumes of his A Song of Ice and Fire series. The paperback of A Game of Thrones is #1 on the mass market lists this week of New York Times and Publishers Weekly, while other titles in the series rank #2, #5, and #7 on various lists. The forthcoming volume A Dance with Dragons, to be published next week, is currently #1 on Amazon.com and Amazon Canada.
