Irish Top Ten Week Ending 19/02/2011

Marian Keyes remains high in the charts with her impressive 2,358 units and is joined in the top three by Emma Donoghue whose Room just keeps selling and the positively Olympian Jamie Oliver whose 30 minute Meals has been selling well since it was released in 2010.

The impressive performance of fiction continues with seven fiction titles in the top ten. The arrival of the mocks season is heralded by the presence of the Maths Tables in the top ten, a sign perhaps that life goes on crisis, elections and all.
