Unit sales of print books fell 2.1% in the week ended Feb. 4, 2023, from the comparable week in 2022, at outlets that report to NPD BookScan. Declines in the juvenile categories and a dip in sales in adult nonfiction offset a 3.5% increase in adult fiction. In addition to the usual strong showing by Colleen Hoover, two new releases, including one from Hoover, helped lift sales of adult books; Hoover’s Heart Bones sold more than 37,000 copies in its first week, landing it in third place on the adult list, behind It Ends with Us (about 70,000 copies sold) and It Starts with Us (about 56,000 copies sold). Final Offer by Lauren Asher sold more than 25,000 copies in its first week, good enough for fifth place. Adult nonfiction sales slipped 2.8% in the week despite good showings by three new books: Jay Shetty’s 8 Rules of Love was #1 in the category, selling more than 66,000 copies; in fourth place was Becoming Free Indeed by Jinger Vuolo, which sold more than 24,000 copies, followed by Pamela Anderson’s Love, Pamela, which sold more than 18,000 copies. Juvenile fiction sales dropped 6.8%. Little Blue Truck’s Valentine by Alice Schertle topped the category both in the most recent week and a year ago. At this time in 2022, Blue Truck sold about 47,000 copies; this time around it sold 39,000 copies. Young adult fiction sales rose 2.6% over 2022, led by two new titles: Chain of Thorns by Cassandra Clare was #1, selling nearly 38,000 copies, followed by Holly Jackson’s As Good as Dead, which sold almost 14,000 copies.
