Irish Top Ten Week Ending 12/03/2011
Still a remarkable performance by the flip books published specially for world book day. Sadly, the dual language title that held the first spot last week, slipped a little this week and was replaced by Dr. Suess, I suppose you can’t have it all. It still help off everyone else to rest in second.
It is remarkable how strong fiction sales remain within this kind of environment with The Brightest Star In The Sky, Room and One Day all making the top ten with solid figures.
Just missing out on the top ten this week is Ghost Light. Joseph O’Connor’s novel newly released in paperback.
