BEST-SELLERS: COMBINED PRINT AND E-BOOKS

Posted April 29, 2018 12:20 a.m. EDT

Rankings reflect sales for the week ending Saturday, April 21, which were reported on a confidential basis by vendors offering a wide range of general interest titles. Every week, thousands of diverse selling locations report their actual sales on hundreds of thousands of individual titles. The panel of reporting retailers is comprehensive and reflects sales in stores of all sizes and demographics across the United States. E-book rankings reflect sales from leading online vendors of e-books in a variety of popular e-reader formats. Titles are included regardless of whether they are published in both print and electronic formats or just one format. Publisher credits for e-books are listed under the corporate publishing name instead of by the publisher’s division. An asterisk (*) indicates that a book’s sales were barely distinguishable from those of the book above. A (b) indicates that some bookstores reported receiving bulk orders. The New York Times Best Sellers are compiled and archived by The Best-Seller Lists Desk of The New York Times News Department and are separate from the Culture, Advertising and Business sides of The New York Times Co.
