Extra commentary
- It's not surprising to see Canadians dominate the hardcover list; we launch a lot of books for local(ish) authors. Like, a LOT.
- The #1 mass market paperback sold more than twice as much as #2. Because we loved it. Handselling works.
- Ann Leckie owned our trade paperback list this year.
- These top 10s aside, our most-sold author this year was Terry Pratchett. Only two of his titles made this list, but overall, we sold more of his titles to more people than any other single author. Which isn't entirely suprising. And makes us happy.

I have bolded the ones I have read.

Scorpion Rules!

From: [identity profile] lsanderson.livejournal.com
Scorpion Rules is really great. Deceptively simple writing about a school for hostages in Manitoba, raising goats, and a world dominating AI that strives for/yearns for/approaches the mythic.
