Unit sales of print books slipped 1.6% in the week ended Jan. 29, 2022, from the comparable week in 2021, at outlets that report to NPD BookScan. The pattern was a familiar one, with sales in the adult fiction and YA categories rising and those in the adult nonfiction and juvenile categories declining. The 7% drop in adult nonfiction sales came despite a number of new books doing very well in their first week. Red Handed: How American Elites Get Rich by Helping China Win by Peter Schweizer topped the category bestseller list, selling more than 89,000 copies. A new Spanish-language title was #3 on the category list: Emma y las otras del narco (Emma and Other Narco Women) by Anabel Hernandez, which sold almost 26,000 copies in its first week. I’ll Be There (but I’ll Be Wearing Sweatpants) by Amy Weatherly was in third place, selling more than 22,000 copies. Adult fiction unit sales rose 14.9% over 2021, and Colleen Hoover had an even better week than usual. She had the top three titles on the adult list (all from different publishers) and had five of the top 10 sellers. Her newest book, Reminders of Him, sold about 33,000 copies, and altogether the five titles sold approximately 112,000 copies. The top-selling new release was Christine Feehan’s Savage Road, which sold almost 14,000 copies in the week. Through the end of January, total unit sales fell 5.6% compared to the first month in 2021.
