While the three individual books in E.L. James’ 50 Shades trilogy stayed atop the fiction list for the week ended June 17, debuting at #4 was a boxed set of the titles that Vintage released June 12. At outlets tracked by Nielsen BookScan, the set sold nearly 84,000 print copies in its first full week on sale and has sold nearly 87,000 copies since its release. BookScan tracks print sales in about 75% of all outlets.
The boxed set has a list price of $47.85, but Amazon is selling it for $28.71.
The highest non-Shades title on the fiction list last week was Calico Joe, which sold about 31,000 copies in stores followed by BookScan.
