The New York Times Bestseller List Will Now Separate YA and Middle Grade Titles!

by Lee Wind

As reported in publisher’s lunch, The New York Times will now “…split its children’s Chapter book bestseller lists into separate middle grade and young adult lists…”Here’s a screen shot (courtesy of Author John Green’s tumbler) of the YA and middle grade lists:

Both lists, including the series bestseller lists, will include ebook sales, while the picture book bestsellers list will continue to report hardcover unit sales only.

This means ten more MG and YA books get to be on the New York Times bestseller list every week, which can only be good for all of us who create MG and YA books!  (And it’s good for readers, too – as they get more information about the age category they’re interested in.)
