     Year on year traffic was disappointingly down again at the complete review in September.
     Several new reviews did break into the top-15 -- the Houellebecq even just on the basis of UK publication (it'll be a while before the US edition appears).

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.
