Nonfiction Bestseller Lists, Week of 4/26

The following is based on the 5/17 NYT lists (sales through 5/2). No new nonfiction titles appeared on the USA Today general list this week. 

Notes:

The Girls from Ames is on the rise, climbing from #5 to #3 on the NYT Nonfiction list and from #35 to #23 on USA Today, possibly indicating it was a choice for Mothers Day gifts (those sales will also be reflected in next week’s lists).
