The New York Times bestseller list is a little less than a year old, but it’s already shaping up to be the most popular and most influential list in the world.
So what is it, exactly?
The NYT lists all the books that have been bestsellers, and then ranks them on the following three criteria: “reads per capita,” “genre,” and “subject matter.”
Each year, the Times reviews all the bestsellings from all the bestselling authors and publishers.
But what is a book, and how does it rank on these metrics?
Let’s start with the most important metric: “Reads per Capita.”
This metric is pretty self-explanatory.
It’s the number of times a book was published in the US, as calculated by the New York Public Library, and is the number in all editions of the book in circulation.
If a book sells more than a million copies, it’s considered to be a “bestseller.”
A book that’s published less than 100,000 times and is still listed on the list is considered “not a bestseller.”
The top 50 bestsellances are then broken down into five categories: science fiction, fantasy, historical, science fiction and fantasy, children’s, children, and romance.
Each book’s sales are measured on a different scale.
For example, The Hunger Games trilogy sold 4.5 million copies worldwide.
For a science fiction book, this would be roughly a million more than the next bestseller.
For children’s books, the figure is somewhere in the neighborhood of half a million.
And for romance, it would be around 700,000.
So the top 50 books on this list all sell more than one million copies in the United States.
And that’s just the top five.
In addition to all the titles listed on this year’s list, other notable titles include:The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, a series of books set in the dystopian future of 2076 that’s currently in the works; Fifty Shades of Grey, the first novel in the wildly popular Fifty Shades series that’s in its third book; and Fifty Shades Darker, the sequel to Fifty Shades, set in a dystopian world.

The NYT’s ranking algorithm also uses data from Nielsen BookScan.
It counts books on the New Yorkers’ Top 500 books list, the top 100 bestsellresses in the New Yorker, the bestseller lists of other major newspapers and magazines, and other sources.
The Top 500 list is not an exhaustive list, but the numbers are used to determine which books are bestselliers in the overall Top 500.
Nielsen also tracks the average price per book in various formats like paperback, e-book, audiobook, Kindle, and Nook.
And this year, they’re tracking the Kindle Book Store as well.
So how do these numbers compare?
The NYT lists the top 20 bestselllers based on the total number of copies sold of each title.
The NYT does not track sales of other books, so you’ll have to use Nielsen Bookscan to get an idea of the total sales of the best sellers.
The number of books in each category are then sorted into the categories on the Top 500 lists.
The top ten bestsellresses on the NYT’s Top 500 is a familiar group: Robert Jordan, Ursula Le Guin, and Margaret Atwood are all listed there, along with Ursula’s Daughter and A Wrinkle in Time by Terry Pratchett.
In fact, you can’t even call this list the “Top 100 best sellers.”
This is because all books listed on these lists sell less than one thousand copies each.
So you’ll probably be surprised to see that none of these books are on the best-sellers list.
Instead, you’ll see titles like:A Wrinkle In Time by Ursula le GuinA Wriggle in Time: A Book of Tales by Ursana Le GuineA Wrinkles In Space by Ursa Le GuinoThe Great Beauty by Margaret AtfordNovella The Wartime Novel by Ursina Le GuinenThe Great Gatsby by F. Scott FitzgeraldAll of the titles on the top-100 list are by women.
The top-ten bestsellors are mostly by women, too, but you can find women on the bottom of the list, as well, such as The Princess Diaries by Lois Lowry, the bestselling book by Jennifer Garner, which is not on the NY Times list.
The other interesting thing about this year is that the NYT doesn’t publish its own rankings.
Instead, it relies on the books on Nielsen BookSearch, which provides a way to compare the overall sales of books based on a list that includes a wide range of genres, books published over a period of time, and
