Irish Top Ten Week Ending 25/09/2010

Another huge week for Lorna Byrne’s Stairways To Heaven. But also a string week for Cathy Kelly and a still impressive result for Emma Donoghue.

Larsson’s books continue to sell in the region of 1,000 copies each a week, I can’t help but wonder how long that can go on for? Will the massive releases this christmas sweep them away or will they benefit from the flow?

Tony Blair just held off Cecelia Ahern and stayed in the top ten with his memoir, selling 971 copies to her 916.
