‘Going Rogue’ Tops Publishers Weekly’s Nonfiction Book List for 2009

Posted by Dr. Fay on March 23, 2010

The Hartford Book Examiner discusses the Publishers Weekly list of bestsellers for 2009:

On Monday, Publishers Weekly unveiled their annual list of bestselling fiction and non-fiction hardcover titles for last year. The list encompasses books that were published between 2008 and 2009 and reflects sales during the calendar year of 2009.

[…]

In non-fiction, Sarah Palin’s Going Rogue received a vote of confidence from readers, landing in the poll position and outselling Ted Kennedy’s True Compass 3:1. While lifestyle, feel-good, and self-help books have fared well in recent years, 2009 reflected a more politically-minded, culturally divisive readership.

[…]

It should be noted that e-book sales were not included in this year’s tally, though they will be next year.

The following are the ten top-selling titles in fiction and non-fiction. (An asterisk denotes a title whose sales figures were provided in confidence, to be used for ranking purposes only.)
