Irish Top Ten Week Ending 24/07/2010

Dan Brown’s paperback release and a renewed surge of summer reading seems to have drive the figures for the Top Ten this week. Kathryn Stockett is at number one by a short, short measure, but it is nice to see her book do so well still, given the enormous word of mouth support it has. Larsson of curse still dominates and the Irish contingent is still at three with Binchy, McCann and O’Connor holding in well enough.
