Weekly Bestsellers, 25 June


Laurell K. Hamilton’s Kiss the Dead debuts on the LA Times list at #6, a week later as usual than its debuts on other lists, where it dropped noticeably, e.g. from 1st to 13th place on the NY Times list.

Other debuts last week, by Scalzi, Davidson, Flint, and Lackey, have dropped off lists altogether.

George R.R. Martin’s A Dance with Dragons, meanwhile, has been on lists for over a year, counting pre-publication sales from Amazon; it was published July 12, 2011. It ranks #12 today on the NY Times list. And Suzanne Collins’ three Hunger Games novels have been on lists, in various editions, for going on three years.
