15 Bestselling Fiction Books for November/December - 2017

AALBC’s Bestselling Book SealOur bestsellers list has been published continuously since 1998 and is the most visible list focused on Black Books in existence. You will learn about books selling well, in the Black community, that may never show up on lists published by larger corporate entities.

Fiction: Sycorax’s Daughters, edited by Kinitra D. Brooks, Linda Addison, and Susana Morris was the bestselling book of all this period. Sales were helped by being Go On Girl Book Club’s selection for December 2017. Fiction titles were the top selling genre this period.

Nonfiction: Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood by Trevor Noah made our list for the 2nd time this year and will be a top selling nonfiction title for 2017. Fewer Nonfiction titles made the list this period than ever before, but they were all strong sellers.

Children’s Books: Poet: The Remarkable Story of George Moses Horton written and illustrated by Don Tate leads the sales of all children’s books this period. It was also a winner of the Carter G. Woodson Book Award for the most distinguished books appropriate for young readers.

Poetry: Sells each 2 month period for which we report, however sales were insufficient to compile a bestsellers for the genre. The last poetry list was last reported Jan/Feb 2017
