The Goldfinch has been going strong the whole time, but seems to have gotten a surge sometime in the last few weeks, helping it grab the overall top selling book of the week. The book was able to grab the #2 spot for NY Times and the #3 spot on Amazon.

Sycamore Row experienced a big drop on the charts this week, almost dropping out of the top 5 for NY Times, and completely falling off the charts for the e-books.

The Divergent trilogy is still selling on Amazon, but lost to The Lone Survivor (mainly because the movie just came out). Should find it’s way back ot the top in the next week or two.
