     There was a small (four per cent) year to year decrease in traffic at the complete review in March.
     No new reviews cracked the top-15, but the renewed strong interest in an old Pankaj Mishra is curious.

For recent bestseller lists, go to previous lists.
For annual and older lists, see also the 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, , 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 , 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018 lists.
