Interesting, But Unsurprising

Yesterday our Random House rep gave us a list of our best-selling Random House titles for 2010. Here’s a shocker: Terry Pratchett features highly (And by ‘highly’, I mean four times in the top ten).

Here’s the first part of the Random House list.
1. I Shall Wear Midnight, Terry Pratchett
2. Knife of Never Letting Go, Patrick Ness
3. Unseen Academicals, Terry Pratchett
4. All Clear, Connie Willis
5. Blackout, Connie Willis (in TR)
6. Good Omens, Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman
7. His Majesty’s Dragon, Naomi Novik
8. City & The City, China Mieville
9. Nation, Terry Pratchett
10. Blackout, Connie Willis (in HC)

It’s kind of neat. We tally our bestsellers ourselves, of course, but we rarely think to break them down by publisher.

    I am mildly surprised to see Good Omens in there. I would have figured everyone had a copy by now. Has it been on this list all along, do you know?

  2. Chris Szego says:

    It may not always be in the top 10, but it’s always on that list.

    Billiac, remember what the authors said about signing autographs in the foreword to the 2006 re-issue? “The books are often well read to the point of physical disintegration; if we run across a shiny new copy, it’s usually because the owner’s previous five have been stolen by friends, struck by lighning or eaten by giant termites in Sumatra.”
