Bestsellers this week

The titles in the top 10 bestsellers chart remain largely unchanged this week, with the film tie-in to American Sniper (Chris Kyle, Scott McEwen & Jim DeFelice, HarperCollins) in top spot for a third consecutive week. Last week’s fastest mover, The Girl on the Train (Paula Hawkins, Doubleday), is the only new entry in the top 10, while the Fifty Shades of Grey film tie-in (E L James, Arrow Books) has climbed to third spot after the film’s release in Australian cinemas last week. This week’s highest new entry is After Ever Happy (Anna Todd, Gallery Books) and the fastest mover is The Brain’s Way of Healing (Norman Doidge, Scribe). Some new children’s and YA titles have also entered the charts, with The Little Bird Who Lost His Song (Jedda Robaard, The Five Mile Press) and Captain Underpants and the Invasion of the Incredibly Naughty Cafeteria Ladies from Outer Space (Dav Pilkey, Scholastic) in the highest new entries chart, and Alice-Miranda at the Palace (Jacqueline Harvey, Random House) and I Was Here (Gayle Forman, S&S) in the fastest movers chart—Books+Publishing (source: Nielsen BookScan, week ending 7 February 2015)
