An End to the Killing Spree
Killing England by Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard is the #2 book in the country. It’s the first book in the popular series to publish after O’Reilly’s ouster from Fox, and first-week sales lag far behind those for earlier titles.

The TB12 Method, a fitness title by New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, is the #3 book in the country. Though the book may appeal to anyone who wants, in the words of the subtitle, “to achieve a lifetime of sustained peak performance,” Brady clearly had the home-field advantage here. Out of 45K print units sold, 11K were sold in the Boston area.

Our review of the Atlanta hip-hop artist’s book praised the author for being “unflinching in his recounting of his life’s lowest moments,” calling his story “riveting, filled with music-world intrigue and inner-city shoot-outs and buoyed by a self-awareness not marred by ego.”
#20 Hardcover Fiction
The National Book Award–winning author’s first novel since 2013’s Someone is “an immense, brilliant novel about the limits of faith, the power of sacrifice, and the cost of forgiveness,” our starred review said.
