AALBC bestselling authors are encouraged to use our Bestseller Seal. Our book sales are also reported to The New York Times and the American Booksellers Association.


Fiction: Bestselling fiction is led by the short story collection Evil Never Sleeps: Tales of Light and Darkness by Robert Fleming an accomplished and talented writer, and the new novel from Kalisha Buckhanon, Speaking of Summer.

Nonfiction: Always a good mix of interesting titles, this period’s list reveals a theme of overcoming struggle with grace and dignity, as illustrated by Fifty-Five Unemployed and Faking Normal: Your Guide to a Better Retirement Life and After Life: My Journey from Incarceration to Freedom.

Children’s Books: Children’s books outsold all other genres this period. Books on our “Top 150 Recommended African-American Children’s Books” are strongly represented on the list.

Poetry: One book made our list this period, Rock And Fire - Love Poetry From The Core by Marc Lacy.


Given all we know, we cannot in good conscience continue supporting am*zon’s monopoly of online book sales. Therefore, we have removed all of the “Buy Links” on AALBC to am*zon’s website and are selling all books directly. We also encourage you to buy your books solely from AALBC and other independent booksellers. Read More ►

1. When you discover something of value on AALBC tell others;
2. When you find an interesting book on AALBC, buy it from us;
3. Pay for your AALBC eNewsletter subscription.

As always, keep reading!

Peace and Love,
Troy Johnson
