Bestsellers this week

James Patterson and Marshall Karp’s NYPD Red 4 (Century) has claimed top spot in the overall bestsellers and highest new entries charts in its first week of release. It unseats Old School: Diary of a Wimpy Kid (Jeff Kinney, Puffin), which drops to second, with the film tie-in of The Dressmaker (Rosalie Ham, Duffy & Snellgrove) in third place. Other fiction titles making a reappearance in the bestsellers chart this summer include The Girl on the Train (Paula Hawkins, Doubleday) in eighth spot and the Pulitzer Prize-winning All the Light We Cannot See (Anthony Doerr, Fourth Estate) in 10th, while last week’s highest new entry, the film tie-in of The Revenant (Michael Punke, The Borough Press), is this week’s fastest mover. Also in the fastest movers chart in the lead-up to the new school year is Louise Park’s School Zone Naplan-Style Workbook: Year 3 Bind Up and School Zone Naplan-Style Workbook: Year 5 Bind Up (both Hinkler) and Get Ready for School: Wipe-Clean Activity Pack (Usborne)—Books+Publishing (source: Nielsen BookScan, week ending 9 January 2016).
