Audible Charts: The Foundling adopts the weekly chart top spot

Stacey Halls' The Foundling (Zaffre) has toddled straight into the Audible weekly number one spot. Halls' second title, the follow-up to her blockbuster debut (and Nibbies-nominated) The Familiars, made its debut straight into the Original Fiction chart in hardback earlier this year.

Audible consumers were in a historical mood, with P G Wodehouse' Thank You, Jeeves (Audible), first published in 1934, and E M Forster's Howards End (Audible), first published in 1910, entering the chart in second and fourth place respectively.

Reni Eddo-Lodge's Why I'm No Longer Talking to White People About Race (Audible for Bloomsbury) has rocketed up the Nielsen BookScan Total Consumer Market and Amazon Charts, following the killing of George Floyd and the outbreak of protests against police brutality towards black people across the US and UK over the past week. It zipped into the Audible chart too, debuting in ninth place.
