Weekly Bestsellers, 3 June


J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Fall of Arthur, edited by Christopher Tolkien (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt), debuts this week at #10 on the New York Times fiction hardcover list, and at #16 on on the same Publishers Weekly list.

Meanwhile, Max Brooks’ World War Z is #1 on NYT‘s trade paperback list, presumably in anticipation of the forthcoming film. As is Orson Scott Card’s Ender’s Game, currently #1 on NYT‘s mass market paperback list.
