Publishers Weekly has released the top-selling print books of 2021.
As in years past, the titles range widely in ages and provide a reminder of some of the big news stories from the year, though PW noted that fewer political nonfiction works made the top part of its list.
Also of note: just two books sold more than a million print copies, compared with seven that did so in the prior year.
Here are the top ten; the magazine compiled stats on the twenty-five biggest sellers, which you can see on its website.
