New to the USA Today Bestsellers, 11/27

The movie tie-in edition of The Road appears on the new USA Today list at #43. The movie, originally scheduled to come out last week, was suddenly switched to an undefined date in 2009, leaving the tie-in seemingly stranded. But it seems that the book doesn’t need no stickin’ movie to be a bestseller again; all it needed was a new cover and prominent display.

There’s no new titles in childrens, but favorite backlist titles are returning to the list, signaling the advent of the major gift-giving season, such as The Cat in the Hat, Where the Wild Things Are and Polar Express

The USA Today list shows the top-selling 150 books, regardless of format, age level, or category. Here, we break down the titles new to the list by broad buying categories.
