Best sellers: a wind of change is blowing on the leading trio

We then find Louis-Ferdinand Céline whose title Guerre (17,142 copies) lost three places for its third week on the tables of bookstores, at Gallimard.

Virginie Grimaldi closes the top five with the 14,012 copies sold of the pocket format of Possible followed by Franck Thilliez and his panting 1991 at Pocket (12,441 copies). Koyoharu Gotôge is back with Demon Slayer in a box including volume 22 as well as the 3rd part of the novel associated with the series which will have reached 10,990 libraries.

We will have this (Fayard) by Virginie Grimaldi is this week neck and neck with the mangaka, with 10,955 sales. Finally volume 101 of One Piece (10,725 copies) and Mazes (10,247 copies) by Franck Thilliez complete the top 10.

ActuaLitté and Edistat, a statistics service for publishing on the French market, present an overview of the best-selling books every Friday — 200 books, all segments combined.

With this list, which can also be printed if necessary with the Printer option in the share bar above, or downloaded in PDF format, it becomes possible to compare stocks and market trends. The barcode makes it easier to place orders, if necessary – and works directly on screen. The world is well done.

The links to the Furet du nord and Decitre sites offer a sales solution for the public — ActuaLitté does not receive any commission on these sales. On the other hand, a link makes it possible to consult an extract of the works in question, when the latter is available.
