Irish Top Ten Week Ending 10/07/2010
A combination of Ghost Light sales slowing and Stieg Larsson hold steady means that Jospeh O’Connor‘s run at the top end of the charts is heading for an end.
I’ll be interested to see how long he now stays in the top ten and whether nominations for any of the upcoming prizes re-energize his sales. Colum McCann‘s paperback edition of Let The Great World Spin is selling nicely and, alongside Maeve Binchy, he rounds out the Irish contingent in the top ten.

2: The Help, Kathryn Stockett, 1,682
3: The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets’ Nest, Stieg Larsson, 1,541
4: Picture Perfect, Jodi Picoult, 1,467
5: Ghost Light, Joseph O’Connor, 1,449
