These Are The Bestselling Books Of 2018 So Far, According To A New Report

A new report from Publishers Weekly shows that one book is dominating lists of the bestselling books of 2018 so far. Published in Jan. 2018, Michael Wolff's Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House is the bestselling book of the year so far, dominating the print, iBook, and Barnes & Noble eBook charts. It's not the only book that's popular across multiple formats, however. Keep reading to find out what books the U.S. is buying in the first half of 2018.

Publishers Weekly released three bestseller lists on Monday: the Top 10 eBooks on iBooks, the Top 10 Barnes & Noble eBooks, and the Top 20 print books. Three titles — Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House by Michael Wolff, The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah, and The Woman in the Window by A.J. Finn — appear on all three lists, and an additional six — Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate, The Fallen by David Baldacci, A Higher Loyalty by James Comey, The President Is Missing by Bill Clinton and James Patterson, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck by Mark Manson, and The Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkane — appear on two of the three lists.

Among the remaining 19 books on the bestseller lists, five are books for children, including two Dr. Seuss titles and the parody picture book, A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo. One book that — thankfully — only appears once on the three lists released by Publishers Weekly is 12 Rules for Life by Jordan Peterson, the Toronto professor who rose to a celebrity among young men on the far right after he refused to use the correct pronouns when talking with a nonbinary college student. All of these titles appear among Publishers Weekly's list of the Top 20 bestselling print books.
