Kidlit is taking over the world

Did you see the list of the top 20 bestsellers in the first quarter of 2009?

GalleyCat was amazed at Stephenie Meyer's market share (16% of all books sold in the first quarter were written by her!)

But here's what amazes me. Of ALL books purchased Jan-Mar of this year, the top 5 sellers? Were kidlit. Twilight took the top 4 spots and Diary of a Wimpy Kid took #5. The rest were written for adults.

Kidlit's gonna get you!
