New York Times Reduces Bestsellers lists

31 January 2017

The New York Times has announced that it will reduce the number of their print and ebook bestseller lists. From February 5 the graphic novel and manga; mass-market paperback; teen and middle grade ebook lists will not be reported on. Publishers Weekly reports that there was no consultation with publishers regarding this move which has been received with shock and confusion by the industry. There is concern that this decision may affect future book sales, marketing and author status in these areas.
