It’s always interesting to find out what other people are reading. In their latest annual report, “The Hottest (and Coldest) Book Categories of 2014,” Publisher’s Weekly breaks down the numbers. Among some of the more interesting:
- All categories of adult fiction were down except for graphic novels and westerns. The category as a whole was down 8%.
- Romance continues to rule the adult fiction roost, accounting for nearly a quarter of all unit sales.
- Juvenile fiction and non-fiction sales were both up, a lot of which was apparently driven by movie and game tie-ins.
