The New York Times Updates And Expands Its Best-Sellers Lists: Monthly Lists Will Now Include Mass Market Paperbacks and Combined Graphic Books
From The NY Times Corp:
Today The New York Times Book Review announced changes to the Best-Seller Lists, in print and online. The Best Sellers team will begin tracking Mass Market Paperbacks (genres including romance) and a combined list for Graphic Books (fiction, nonfiction, children’s, adults, and manga).
Previously tracked by the Best Sellers franchise until 2017, these lists are returning due to continued reader interest and market strength. These monthly lists will begin publishing on October 2 (online) and October 20 (in print).
In addition, there will be two new monthly children’s lists: Middle Grade Paperback and Young Adult Paperback. The monthly Science and Sports lists are being retired as the titles on those lists are frequently represented on current nonfiction lists. These changes reinforce the mission of the Best-Seller Lists to track what is broadly popular in the bookselling industry.
