Last week there were five, now there are six.
We are of course talking about the number of adult colouring books appearing in our weekly best-sellers list. For the first time in many weeks, both of Johanna Basford's intricately-designed colouring books were in stock and they flew off our shelves in spectacular fashion.
If you are still considering picking up a copy of either Basford book, we recommend that you do so (and quickly) before they go out of stock again.
Our top ten best-selling books for the week ending Saturday 8 August were:
1. Secret Garden by Johanna Basford
2. Go Set A Watchman by Harper Lee
3. Millie Marotta's Animal Kingdom by Millie Marotta
4. The Little Book of Calm Colouring by David Sinden & Victoria Kay
5. Mindfulness Colouring Book by Emma Farrarons
6. The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins
7. Enchanted Forest by Johanna Basford
8. Animorphia by Kerby Rosanes
9. Halliday Wine Companion 2016 by James Halliday
10. Australia's Most Murderous Prison by James Phelps
Somehow there are still people in this country who haven't read The Girl on the Train
yet. Where have you people been living for the past eight months? If you've only recently read this exceptional novel and want to talk to others who have also read it, there's a thread on the Bookmarked Forum dedicated to it here
Also, our tenth spot seems to be reserved for books written by an author who has 'James' in their name. This week, Grey
gave way to Australia's Most Murderous Prison
, demonstrating that sometimes the similarity between two books can begin and end with a name.
We expect to see some more changes next week, with a certain loveable Aussie partnership releasing a new book this week about multiple-storey treehouses. Can Johanna Basford hold onto top spot?
