Driven once again by gains in fiction, unit sales of print books rose 9.7% in the week ended Nov. 27, 2021, over the similar week in 2020, at outlets that report to NPD BookScan. Three new adult fiction titles led to a 35.3% increase in unit sales in the category, compared to the week ended Nov. 28, 2020. The latest volume in Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander series, Go Tell the Bees I Am Gone, sold nearly 183,000 copies in its first week. In second place on the category list was The Becoming, the second book in the Dragon Heart Legacy series by Nora Roberts, which sold more than 42,000 copies. This was followed by Fear No Evil by James Patterson, which sold almost 37,000 copies. Print unit sales jumped 39.1% in the YA fiction category, led by Brandon Sanderson’s newly released Cytonic, which sold almost 21,000 copies. Jeff Kinney’s Big Shot continued to head the juvenile fiction list, selling more than 88,000 copies. Adult nonfiction sales fell 1.2% in the week, a good performance considering that this time last year, Barack Obama’s A Promised Land sold more than 411,000 copies in its second week, giving it a two-week sales total of 1.2 million copies. In the most recent week, The Real Anthony Fauci by Robert F. Kennedy Jr. was #1 in the category, selling more than 46,000 copies in its second week, followed by two other titles that were released on November 16: The 1619 Project by Nikole Hannah-Jones, which sold almost 37,000 copies, and All American Christmas by Rachel Campos-Duffy and Sean Duffy, which sold almost 35,000 copies.
