For those who are unaware; NPD BookScan compiles weekly point-of-sale information on printed books from a vast network of over 16,000 outlets, including e-commerce retailers, chain stores, independent bookstores, mass merchandisers, and other sources. This data covers about 85% of the United States trade print book market. The rankings presented in this chart are determined by the number of pieces sold.
