Unit sales of print books rose 24.3% in the week ended Apr. 24, 2021, over the comparable week in 2020, at outlets that report to NPD BookScan. At this time last year, sales were beginning to recover from declines early in the pandemic and were almost flat with the comparable week in 2019. In the most recent week, adult nonfiction unit sales jumped 44.3% over sales in the category during the week ended Apr. 25, 2020, as five of the top 10 adult nonfiction bestsellers were new releases. World Traveler by the late Anthony Bourdain and his longtime collaborator Laurie Woolever took the top spot in the category, selling more than 50,000 copies. George W. Bush’s Out of Many, One was in the fourth place, selling almost 28,000 copies, followed by Cook This Book by Molly Baz, which sold about 22,000 copies. Adult fiction sales increased 33% over 2020. David Baldacci’s A Gambling Man was #1 in its first week, selling more than 44,000 copies. Within adult fiction, graphic novel sales skyrocketed, and Lovesickness by Junji Ito was the top new title, selling about 8,500 copies. Sales more than doubled in the YA fiction category over last year without the benefit of a huge new hit. Adam Silvera’s They Both Die at the End remained #1, selling more than 13,000 copies. Juvenile nonfiction continued to struggle with tough comparisons to 2020, when sales skyrocketed, and units were down 24.4% in the week ended April 24. My First Learn-to-Write Workbook by Crystal Radke was #1, as it was at this time last year; it sold more than 7,600 copies in the most recent week, down from over 36,000 copies a year ago.
