These days, its nearly impossible to make a splash on the paperback bestseller charts if the author isn't already a known entity, the book isn't part of an established brand and/or Oprah hasn't given the title a nod. Heck, it's hard to get any attention without these elements in hardcover, too, but you can sometimes get lucky on that list with a news hook or great reviews.

Check out the books that sold more than one million copies in trade paper. The novels in this group are either titles in the phenomenally bestselling Left Behind series or Oprah Book Club picks. Almost all the nonfiction bestsellers are holdovers from last year, part of Health Communications' Chicken Soup brand or, again, books that have been featured by Oprah.

In mass market, the million-plus group is a veritable who's who in bestselling fiction. Household names like John Grisham (with two books) and Nora Roberts (seven books) top the list. No slouches, Danielle Steel, Catherine Coulter and Sandra Brown have three books apiece. And Stephen King, Mary Higgins Clark and James Patterson each have two on the mass market charts. There are four V.C. Andrews bestsellers, all written after her death by authors continuing in her bestselling tradition. And there are four action novels by Tom Clancy with co-writers; he wields the sales power and the other authors wield the pen. The only nonfiction mass market with sales of more than 750,000 copies is Dr. Atkins' New Diet Revolution (Avon) by Dr. Robert C. Atkins; as of March 12, it's enjoyed a 208-week tenure on the weekly PW mass market list.

Number Adjustments

This year, we address the changing nature of the paperback marketplace in two ways. We are no longer listing trade paper sales of 50,000—75,000 on these annual charts; to be included, sales have to be exceed 75,000. For the first time, we're listing mass market titles with sales of 750,000. Both moves reflect the changes in the softcover market—the first recognizes the dramatic increases in trade paperback numbers; the second addresses the fact that with the consolidation of mass market independent distributors, unit sales for rack-size paperbacks have seriously decreased.

Just five years ago on these annual charts, there were only two trade paperbacks with sales of two million or more; the 2000 group has 19 books that achieve that sales grade (almost double the 10 books that did so in 1999). At the 500,000-plus level, there were five trade paperbacks in 1995, 17 in 1999 and that number grew to 27 in 2000. Not only is this format one of the fastest growing in the business, it is also the format that has the longest shelf life. Of the 75 titles that were on the weekly 2000 charts, at least half had double-digit weekly tenures. This group also included 17 titles that have so far been on the charts for more than six months.

In mass market, the picture is different. There were 154 titles on the 2000 weekly charts, and only 13 of them have to date enjoyed double-digit runs. The shorter shelf life as well as the distributor consolidation impacts the total sales figures achieved by mass market bestsellers. Back in 1995, 58 books had sales of more than one million; that figure included 13 books with sales of more than two million. In 2000, there were 49 titles with sales of more than one million and only seven in this group were in the two-million-plus column.

Figuring the 2000 List

Listed on the following pages are trade paperbacks and mass markets published in 1999 or 2000; the rankings are based on 2000 sales only. To qualify, trade paperback titles had to have sold at least 75,000 copies in 2000; for mass markets, sales of at least 750,000 or more were required. A single asterisk (*) indicates the book was published in 1999; a double asterisk (**) means the book was published earlier, but either remained or reappeared on the charts in the year 2000. Those reappearances often were movie tie-ins or Oprah selections. A number sign (#) indicates that the shipped and billed number was rounded down to the nearest 25,000 to indicate relationship to sales figures of other titles. The actual figures were given to PW in confidence for use in placing titles on the lists.
