Led by blockbuster first week sales for The Woman in Me by Britney Spears and a strong showing in the young adult category, unit sales of print books rose 1.4% last week over the week ended October 29, 2022, at outlets that report to Circana BookScan.

Driven by The Woman in Me, which sold nearly 418,000 copies at BookScan outlets in its first week on sale, adult nonfiction sales rose 11.4%. A host of other new nonfiction releases also had solid sales, including the newest Ree Drummond title, The Pioneer Woman Cooks—Dinner’s Ready!, which sold nearly 38,000 copies, and Hidden Potential by Adam Grant, which sold almost 34,000 copies.

Unit sales in the young adult fiction segment jumped 20.2%, led by Stephanie Garber’s A Curse for True Love, which sold nearly 61,000 copies in its first week on sale. The Cruel Prince: Collector’s Edition by Holly Black sold over 9,000 copies, landing it in third place on the category list.

Jeff Kinney’s No Brainer, the newest edition in the Wimpy Kid series, sold almost 143,000 copies in its first week on sale, but sales in the juvenile fiction segment still fell 5.1%. A year ago, Kinney’s Diper Overlöde sold 173,000 copies in its first week.

Adult fiction sales dropped 6.8% in the week. John Grisham’s The Exchange remained in first place, selling over 49,000 copies, far below the 190,000 copies Colleen Hoover’s It Starts with Us sold a year ago. The newest Jack Reacher novel, The Secret by Lee and Andrew Child, sold more than 41,000 copies in its first week, slightly better than the 40,000 copies No Plan B sold a year ago
