Irish Top Ten Week Ending 02/07/2011

Not a terrible week for book sales, at least in the top ten. There was a slight recovery on last week and the average sale per title is up a little because of that. It’s also nice to see there are still four Irish authors in the top ten.

Fiction is still holding off non-fiction almost entirely. Kate McCann’s book is falling down the list and when it drops out of the top ten, I wonder will it be replaced by fiction or non-fiction, I expect fiction.

1: All for You, Sheila O’Flanagan, 1486
2: Broken, Karin Slaughter, 1,240
3: The Midwife’s Confession, Diane Chamberlain, 1,140
4: Something from Tiffany’s, Melissa Hill, 1,100
