Following the merger of NPD Group and Information Resources, Inc. (IRI) in 2022, NPD BookScan became Circana Books in March.
Weekly point-of-sale data on print books is collected from over 16,000 venues, including e-tailers, chains, mass merchandisers, independent bookstores, and others.
Circana BookScan covers over 85% of the trade print book industry in the United States. This chart’s rankings are based on per-piece sales.
Some publishers identify graphic novels as predominantly text or art books; ICv2 eliminates those titles from the rankings.
