Weekly Bestsellers, 8 July


Stephen King’s Joyland is showing a bit more stamina than Neil Gaiman’s The Ocean at the End of the Lane, both of which have dominated lists in recent weeks. King’s novel remains #1 on two lists, and slips to #2 on another. Gaiman’s novel reaches #1 on the LA Times list — which always lags behind the other print lists — but slips two or three or twelve notches on the other print lists.

Margaret Atwood’s next novel, MaddAddam, due August 27, appears on Amazon Canada’s list today for the first time, with pre-publication orders.
