Irish Top Ten Week Ending 02/10/2010
What a week for Penguin Ireland. The new ROCK (Ross O’Carroll Kelly) book is selling like hot cakes coming in at a mighty number three with an impressive 1,960 sales. On top of that, the Shane Ross and Nick Webb penned Wasters also did well and sold over 1,500 units coming in at number six.
just outside of the top ten, Derbhail MacDonald’s Bust is selling nicely too, with some 770 units sold and a chart placing of thirteenth. Penguin Ireland publisher, Michael McLoughlin, announced on twitter that Bust was headed for a reprint. Interestingly their success puts the Irish contingent in the top ten at 50% for the first time in a little while.
