Instead of “don’t judge a book by its cover,” let’s perhaps start saying “don’t judge a book by its first-year sales.”

Literary Hub took a look at a long list of big-name novels and how many copies were bought in the first year of publication.

You won’t be surprised by some of the books on the high end, but those at the lower end may catch you off guard.

See how well your favorite (or least favorite) popular novel sold in its early days here.
