Lee's reign continues, Grey sales near one million

Harper Lee has kept hold of the Official Top 50 top spot for a third consecutive week with Go Set A Watchman (Heinemann). It shifted 27,122 copies and made £315,252 through Nielsen BookScan’s Total Consumer Market, which equated to a 52.9% drop week-on-week. So far this year, only two authors have held the number one position for more than three weeks - E L James with Grey (Arrow) and Jessie Burton with The Miniaturist (Picador). Watchman’s three week-streak puts Lee level with Lee Child, who racked up three weeks at the top with Personal (Bantam) in the spring.
