Best sellers: comics, manga and novels, sequels are popular

noa by Marc Levy, last volume of the trilogy 9 at Robert Laffont, loses two places despite some 12,081 copies sold. Finally, the pocket format of the seventh part of seven sisters by Lucinda Riley, The missing sister (11.142 ex.), passes in front of The possibilities by Virginie Grimaldi (10,490 copies).

The paperback version of the thriller 1991 by Franck Thilliez is not unworthy and goes up two places with 10,323 copies sold just ahead of that of The Anomaly by Hervé Le Tellier (10,313 copies). Then comes the 22nd volume of the manga Demon Slayer which, for its third week on bookstore shelves, will have sold 10,064 volumes. War (8,767 copies) by Louis-Ferdinand Céline retains 9th position in the ranking and it is Three (8,735 copies), by Valérie Perrin, which closes the top 10 of the week.

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.
