Last week, my fourth book, American Nations: A History of the Eleven Rival Regional Cultures of North America, made the Wall Street Journal bestseller list for the first time, eight years after its initial release. For the week ending July 20, it made #7 on the Non-fiction e-book list. (If you don’t subscribe, other papers publish this list.)
The book also made #106 on the USA Today Bestseller List for all types of books and editions.
As you will likely surmise, most of the sales were e-books and, since the New York Times doesn’t have a category for that, it didn’t make the grey lady’s lists, alas. (My publisher, at least, requires three national lists before bestowing the title “National Bestseller.”)
Thanks to everyone who bought an e-book last week, or any edition at any time really!
