Amazon has released its annual list marking its best-selling books of 2016.
“Harry Potter and the Cursed Child: Parts 1 and 2”, written by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, tops the list in four cathegories: best-selling kids books of 2016, best-selling teens books of 2016, “most gifted” and “most wished for” books of the year.
About the result, Amazon senior book editor Chris Schluep, said:
“The power of Potter is still strong, and readers of all ages can’t get enough of Hogwarts. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child was the most anticipated book of the year, breaking pre-order records months before its release”.
The best-selling book lists are comprised of first editions published in 2016, including both print and Kindle purchases. You can check Amazon’s top 20 here.
