     Traffic was solid at the complete review in September, though less than last year.

     New reviews again performed very strongly, making up most of the list, including top performer Piranesi (even if the review is hardly to be found via Google search).

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, 2018, and 2019 lists.
