     Year on year traffic was down slightly at the complete review in December.

     There was considerable interest in new reviews, with several even cracking the top-20.

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.
