In early 2006 James Frey was chastised, ostracized and perhaps indelibly stigmatized by Oprah Winfrey's public humiliation of him on national TV. But that was this year. Last year, thanks in major part to Oprah's impassioned support for A Million Little Pieces, the now-alleged memoir racked up enough sales to lead all trade paperbacks in the U.S., with more than three million units sold. And in the first three months of this year, Pieces continues strong, riding high on both PW's and the New York Times bestseller lists. "The controversy," according to Russell Perreault, v-p/director of publicity for Anchor, "actually propelled sales."

Do You Sudoku?

The big news of 2005 was the emergence of sudoku titles. According to its fans, sudoku is the new crossword puzzle, Rubik's Cube and Bridge column all rolled into one. PW encountered 23 sudoku titles, with total sales nearing the 5,700,000 mark. St. Martin's/Griffin author Will Shortz was the most prolific, with six titles, ranging from the easy-to-do to the master category.

Eat, Then Diet

Cooking and dieting seem to go together. So it's no surprise that both are well represented for 2005. The new cooking wizard is Food Network's starlet Rachael Ray. She weighed in with two new titles and three backlist favorites. In all, she sold more than two million copies in 2005. Good Books was also well represented, with three titles in the Fix-It and Forget-It line. Paula Deen, another Food Network star, sold a whopping 634,403 copies of Lady & Sons: Savannah Country Cookbook. And once you pack those pounds on, they gotta come off. It seems that with the death of Dr. Robert Atkins, his diet books also took a hit. The new diet guru is Dr. Arthur Agatston and his South Beach Diet titles. Three trade titles sold nearly 1,680,000 copies and the mass market of the South Beach Diet added another 1,800,000.

Tie-Ins Diversify

In the old days, tie-ins were strictly related to motion pictures and TV movies. Now, they've branched out into the Broadway theater, too, with tie-ins of Wicked and The Color Purple leading the way. The hottest show on television was represented by a Desperate Housewives tie-in, while Capote, which won Philip Seymour Hoffman an Oscar, also breathed new life into Truman's Capote 1966 classic, In Cold Blood. Brokeback Mountain, the most controversial movie of the year, also was represented in sales. The most successful tie-in was Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden. Three Vintage editions (trade reprint, trade tie-in, mass market tie-in) sold in excess of 1,720,000 copies.

Mass Market: Novels Are Us

Mass market has become the home of genre fiction. Mass market sales were heavily influenced by novelists with very familiar names. John Grisham led the charge, and was followed in the multiples by Nora Roberts (11 times), Janet Evanovich (six), Dan Brown and Dean Koontz (three each). Mass market nonfiction was few and far between, represented most notably by TheSouth Beach Diet and the two volumes of former President Clinton's My Life.

Rules for Inclusion

Listed on the following pages are trade paperbacks and mass market titles published in 2004 and 2005; the rankings are based only on 2005 sales. To qualify, trade paperbacks had to have sold more than 100,000 copies in 2005; for mass markets, sales of more than 500,000 were required. A single asterisk (*) indicates the book was published in 2004; a double asterisk (**) means the book was published earlier but either remained or reappeared on PW's bestseller charts in 2005. These reappearances are most often movie tie-ins. A pound symbol (#) indicates that the shipped-and-billed figure was rounded down to the nearest 5,000 to indicate the books' sales relationship to other titles. The actual figures were given to PW in confidence for use only in placing titles on these lists.
