Irish Top Ten Week Ending 10/07/2010

The most notable feature of the top ten this week is its remarkable stability.

The same few titles seem to be rotate around the top slots and have done for the last few weeks. Binchy, O’Connor, Stockett, Picoult are all solid names on the list, so too the seemingly unceasingly popular Larsson.

The arrival in the top ten this week of Amanda Brunker and the return of McCann brings the Irish author contingent to 40% which is no mean feat.
