top 10 book list

edited July 2010 in - Reading
Does anybody know of a regularly updated and independant top 10 book selling list? There used to be one on ceefax a few years ago but like all usefull and good things it was stopped.

Regards to All


  • Hello Davey, good to see you. Have you tried the Bookseller website?
  • I hadn't thought of them Dorothy - I will this instant.
  • Hmm - You have to be a subscriber for that one. Costs too much for me at the moment but looks as though it would be good value.
  • Neilson bookscan is the place you want. They are the people who keep a record of book sales and have the figures for every book sold and regularly update the top 10.

  • Oh, welcome by the way.
  • Many thanks, Liz.

    Davey they have the official UK top 20 on the home page which is accessible to anyone. You need to be a subscriber to see the remainder.

  • Sorry Davey. I've just discovered that The Sunday Times has gone subscription only too. They have weekly top ten in fiction and non-fiction, hardback and paperback.
  • But they both will have got their info from Nielson bookscan...
