Fiction: Runaway Soul by Tiffani Quarles-Sanders was the bestselling book of all this period and has made our list every period this year.
Nonfiction: The Tithing Hoax: Exposing The Lies, Misinterpretations & False Teachings About Tithing has made the AALBC Bestsellers list an incredible 24 times and is our #3 all-time bestselling nonfiction book.
Children’s Books: Children’s sales are led by the independently published Black Fairy Tales: A Coloring and Activity Book by Crystal Swain-Bates — a two-time bestseller.
Poetry: It seems readers have decided to stop purchasing poetry titles from AALBC. I’m not sure if this is part of a larger trend, but historically, poetry has done well on AALBC. Unfortunately, the old refrain “Poetry does not sell” seems to be true for AALBC today. There have not been enough poetry book sales to create a bestsellers list since the period ending February 2017. If anyone has any ideas why poetry sales are down; please share them in the comments below
