Amazon Charts: The Mirror and the Light beams into the top spot

Hilary Mantel's The Mirror and the Light (Fourth Estate) has illuminated the Amazon Charts a week ahead of publication, with the final title in the Cromwell trilogy rising 10 places to claim the Most-Sold: Fiction number one. It was, unsurprisingly, the most pre-ordered title in the chart. Mantel's Booker winner Wolf Hall also charted in Most-Sold, in 18th place.

J K Rowling's The Tales of Beedle the Bard (Pottermore), released in audio download with an all-star cast on 31st March, was the highest new entry in Most-Sold: Fiction, as the Harry Potter titles dominated the Most-Read: Fiction chart. Only Marian Keyes' Grown Ups (Penguin) broke up the Potter party in sixth place.

Tyson Fury's Behind the Mask (Cornerstone) held the Most-Sold: Non-Fiction number one, the week after the boxer re-claimed the WBC heavyweight champion of the world title. Edith Eger's The Choice (Ebury) soared into third place, in its second week in the chart.

Michelle Obama's Becoming (Penguin) once again held Most-Read: Non-Fiction, in its sixth straight week in the top spot. The former First Lady's memoir previously held the number one for 17 weeks from Amazon's inaugural charts in July, before Bill Bryson's The Body (Transworld) interrupted its run.
