Bookstat: Secrets abound in digital charts

Bookstat: Secrets abound in digital charts

Liane Moriarty’s The Husband’s Secret (Penguin) zipped into the Bookstat e-book number one. The title, originally published in 2013, has been making its way up the paperback charts since the beginning of the year. It entered the Bookstat chart in the first week of March, following a price drop to 99p. 

J P Delaney’s Playing Nice (Quercus) bounced into second place, followed by Mike Gayle’s All the Lonely People (Hodder & Stoughton) and Katie Fforde’s A Springtime Affair (Cornerstone).

It’s rare for a cookbook to appear in the Bookstat chart, but Rukmini Iyer’s The Quick Roasting Tin (Vintage) made its debut in ninth last week, after a brief price drop. In print, the Roasting Tin series has sold over half a million copies.

Clarification: Hachette has stated that Playing Nice sold 7,916 copies; All the Lonely People 7,019 units; and The Switch 6,014.
