Link Du Jour: Bestselling Children’s Books of 2009
Attention folks interested in 2009 children’s book sales figures: they’re out.
Publishers Weekly has broken down which titles moved the most units in aught nine. My notes are as follows:
- Dang, Golden Books are still sellin’ by the truckload.
- Wimpy Kid took #1 and #2 in the hardcover frontlist category?
- If you slap Twilight on anything rectangular it will sell.
- The same goes for Fancy Nancy.
- Series books are where it’s at. Barely a stand-alone to be found at the top of the lists.
