Weekly Bestsellers: 2 January


Stephen King’s 11/22/63 is still #1, on two lists.

Several other titles, by Crichton/Preston, Morgenstern, and Murakami, hold steady from last week.

New to a couple lists is Karen Russell’s Swamplandia!, originally published last February and available in trade paperback since late July, and included several best-of-the-year lists for 2011.
