     Year on year traffic declined slightly at the complete review in July.
     New reviews fared quite well in and near the bestseller list, with Neal Stephenson's Fall showing strong staying power from last month's 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, 2017, and 2018 lists.
