     Traffic was essentially unchanged, year to year, at the complete review in November.
     Good to see that, with the publication of the long-awaited new translation of Anniversaries, that old review made it onto the list.

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, and 2017 lists.
