With sales up in all categories, unit sales of print books rose 9.5% in the week ended Oct. 31, 2020, over the comparable week in 2019, at outlets that report to NPD BookScan. The top-selling book was The Deep End (Diary of a Wimpy Kid #15) by Jeff Kinney, which sold more than 171,000 copies and helped to drive up sales in the juvenile fiction category by 15.5%. A second new release that landed high on the category list was Jimmy Fallon’s 5 More Sleeps ’til Christmas, which sold more than 21,000 copies. For most categories, sales increases over the week ended Nov. 2, 2019, weren’t driven by hot new bestsellers but by solid sales overall. The #1 title in the juvenile nonfiction category, for example, was Big Preschool Workbook, which sold a modest 7,200 copes. The YA fiction category, which had a 25.7% increase, was once again led by Stephenie Meyer’s Midnight Sun, which sold more than 17,000 copies. One category that benefitted from new titles was adult fiction, which had a 10.7% increase in unit sales over 2019. The Sentinel by Lee and Andrew Child sold more than 54,000 copies in its first week, putting it at #1 on the category list. Three Women Disappear by James Patterson and Shan Serafin sold more than 16,000 copies—good enough for a fourth-place showing on the category bestseller list. Greenlights by Matthew McConaughey was tops in adult nonfiction for the second week in a row, selling more than 44,000 copies. Make Life Beautiful by Syd and Shea McGee was the best-performing new title, selling more than 14,000 copies.
