This is the current top 50 bestselling books in the UK.

The key below will explain what everything means.  I was going to remove that detail but actually it’s quite interesting to see what position the books were in last week (if any) so I left it in. For example the book that is at #20 was at #122 last week, and the book at #28 was at #2138!   Also the difference between the retail price and the average selling price is interesting, or at least it is to me smile

Key: LW – Last Week, RRP – Recommended Retail Price, ASP – Average Selling Price

I’ve also highlighted the Richard and Judy books in red.  There are only five of them in the top 50.  They don’t seem to be as popular as in previous years.
