See the: Older Adults BEST SELLERS list
Best Seller lists are hogwash!
Ditto on the Man Brooker award!
Same for the Giller Prize for books and most of those awards. I dismiss them because they are based on some ‘hidden agenda;’ maybe process of elimination; or patriotic nationalism. Books for many of these lists are not selected on the basis of popularity or reader feedback but on other criteria for selection. Likely chings at the till rather than borrowing from the local library? Ask an actual reader of the book and often the book is rated much lower than as seen on many best seller lists; sometimes the book is even panned. Yet it attains award status. How can that be?
The best BEST SELLER list compiled here is based on actual reader feedback. Readers like you sent in authors or titles that they have actually read and enjoyed. Some of these contributors even added short reviews.[ Sincere thanks goes out to all those contributors ]
