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!
