USA Today: Twilight Saga Book Sales Still Strong in 2010

USA Today takes a look at the top 100 selling books of 2010 & even though there hasn't been a new book in the saga for 2 years all 4 books in the Twilight Saga are still in the top 100. And different from other lists (like New York Times) they don't split the list into categories.) Here's where they landed:


10    Breaking Dawn
11     Bree Tanner
13     Eclipse
24     Twilight
27     New Moon
81     The Host


More of the stats from USA Today:




Call it escapism or merely a fondness for good stories, but in the midst of a recession at home and wars abroad, fiction seized a record-high share of the best sellers of 2010.


**Romance, which tends to sell best in hard times, accounted for 12% of best sellers, up from 10% in 2009. One factor: Readers who wouldn't be caught dead with risqué covers in public enjoyed the privacy of reading romantic e-books.


**After a remarkable two-year run at the top of the annual list, Stephenie Meyer's popularity began to cool off. She accounted for 4% of best sellers the list tracked, down from 11% in 2009. The vampire and paranormal craze among readers isn't dead, but it's fading, accounting for just 9% of best sellers, down from 17% in 2009.


**Nothing boosts a book like a film. More than a dozen of the year's 100 top best sellers were connected to recent films. Sparks cashed in at the box office (Dear John and The Last Song hit the big screen) and in bookstores (Song was No. 5 for the year, Dear John No. 8).


**Three of the five most popular authors write series aimed at kids or teens: No. 2, Rick Riordan (Percy Jackson and the Olympians); No. 3, Meyer (Twilight); and No. 4, Jeff Kinney (Diary of a Wimpy Kid).
