Weekly Bestsellers, 9 January


Dean Koontz’ 77 Shadow Street (Bantam) bumps Stephen King’s 11/22/63 out of top place on two lists to rank #1 at both New York Times and Publishers Weekly. It debuts on two other lists as well.

Also notable this week: the debut of the trade paperback edition of Deborah Harkness’ A Discovery of Witches (Penguin) on four lists, as high as #7 on the NYT list.
