Booknet Canada Releases The 150 Bestselling Books by Canadian Authors From the Last 10 Years
From Booknet Canada:
To celebrate the sesquicentennial, we stayed true to our book-reading, data-loving selves and pulled together a list of 150 Canadian-authored (English language) bestsellers from the last 10 years.
Robert Munsch appears on this list the most times of any author. He’s written 35 of the titles on the list! That means 23% of the top Canadian books are Munsch titles. He’s one prolific and beloved author.
Margaret Atwood is second-most frequent author. She has four titles that made the list: The Year of the Flood, The Handmaid’s Tale, Oryx and Crake, and her Massey lecture, Payback.
Kelley Armstrong, Joseph Boyden, Chris Hadfield, Lawrence Hill, Alice Munro, and Miriam Toews all have three titles each.
The subject breakdown is a pretty even split, all things considered, with 54 Fiction titles, 49 Non-Fiction titles, and 49 Juvenile titles (of those, 47 are Fiction and two are Non-Fiction). Biography & Autobiography is the largest category of Non-Fiction titles, followed closely by Cooking.
