10 Bestselling Fiction Books for May/June - 2019
Fiction: Fiction titles were the most popular genre this period. The category was led by Raisins in Milk by David Covin. We are particularly proud of this title as it is perhaps the first book written, published, designed, and printed by Black owned companies, to make AALBC’s bestsellers list. Raisins in Milk is also the first book to sport, on the printed book, AALBC’s Bestsellers Seal
Nonfiction: The brand new book, Life Is God’s Best Gift: Wisdom from the Ancestors on Finding Peace and Joy in Today’s World (Amistad, Jun 25, 2019), by Sam Chege led all other nonfiction titles by a large margin.
Children’s Books: The super-talented duo of poet Kwame Alexander and artist Kadir Nelson, bring us the top selling Children’s book, The Undefeated.
Poetry: There were not enough poetry book sales, this period, to generate a bestsellers list for poetry. We encourage you to check out the poetry books recently nominated for a Hurston/Wright Award, for some great books.
