New Hardcover Fiction Bestsellers

We’re focusing just on hardcover fiction from the 3/8 NYT list (for the week ending 2/21) and on the 2/26 USA Today list (week ending 2/22). We’ll look at the other categories in separate posts.

Moving Up

Dog On It, the first in a new series of detective books, told from a dog’s viewpoint, zoomed up to #7 on the NYT fiction list, from #32 on the extended list last week. On the USA Today list, it retreated a bit, from #62 to #77. 

Cutting for Stone, by Abraham Verghese almost made the leap from the NYT extended list to the main list, moving from #34 to #17 this week. It’s not showing on the USA Today list. 

Drood, by Dan Simmons, moved up from #113 to #105 on USA Today. It’s still at #18 on the NYT extended Fiction list, after two weeks.

The Help rose a bit on the NYT extended list from #22 to #29, but is not showing on USA Today.
