Barnes & Noble Announces the Highest-Selling Books of 2017 in Fiction, Nonfiction, Teen, and Kid Titles

New York, NY, 2017-Dec-22 — /EPR Retail News/ — Milk & Honey, a book of poetry and prose addressing survival and love, sits alongside a blogger’s guide to finding happiness by ditching “positivity” in rankings of the highest-selling books in 2017 for Barnes & Noble, Inc. (NYSE: BKS).

“It’s hard to imagine two more aesthetically different books at the top of our fiction and nonfiction bestseller lists for the year,” said Liz Harwell, Director of Merchandise. “But in some ways, both books are addressing a core issue for many of us: how to live good, satisfying lives.”

The titles, released today by the world’s largest retail bookseller, represent purchases made across Barnes & Noble’s more than 600 stores and online this year through mid-December.

“We are glad to see a wide range of new and reissued titles in our lists this year,” Harwell said. “As always, popular shows and movies drove some books to the top of our lists, including The Handmaid’s Tale and the children’s title Wonder. Meanwhile, classics 1984 and To Kill a Mockingbird were popular again this year, showing the lasting power of good books.”

Barnes & Noble survey: Americans turn to books on Thanksgiving Eve more than any other day of the year

National Poll Conducted by Barnes & Noble Finds Most Americans Turn to a Good Read to Get Through Stressful Holiday Travels

New York, 2017-Nov-14 — /EPR Retail News/ — Barnes & Noble, Inc. (NYSE: BKS), the world’s largest retail bookseller, recently commissioned an independent survey to explore consumer reading habits around the holiday season, and the results revealed that Americans turn to books and periodicals on Thanksgiving Eve more than any other day of the year to help ease the stress of traveling. Historically, the Thanksgiving holiday is the busiest travel time of the year, notorious for transportation delays burdening travelers at every turn.

“The holiday season is an exciting, but hectic time for people all over the country. At Barnes & Noble, we know our customers want a stress-free holiday experience, whether shopping for gifts in-store or purchasing a good read to enjoy during their holiday commutes,” says Liz Harwell, Senior Director of Merchandising, Trade Books.  “Knowing that Thanksgiving Eve is the busiest reading day of the year, we’re excited to welcome customers into our stores to take advantage of one-of-a-kind bookseller recommendations and exclusives.”

It’s Official: Thanksgiving Eve Is the Busiest Reading Day of the Year
Holiday travel is often characterized by crowds, delays and traffic jams. However, when survey respondents take the time to read while traveling, 73 percent report that reading makes the trip more relaxing, while 72 percent say reading a book they enjoy makes their trip more enjoyable. Reading is indeed the antidote to holiday travel stress.

  • Over three-fourths of Americans (77 percent) read at least one book, newspaper or magazine during Thanksgiving travel or a typical holiday travel day.
  • Nearly three-fourths of respondents (73 percent) generally think that traveling on Thanksgiving Eve is a good time to bring a book they would enjoy and be able to read.
  • When thinking specifically about traveling on Thanksgiving Eve, 60 percent of travelers typically pack, purchase or borrow reading materials (books, newspaper, magazines, digital books) specifically for their planned travel.
  • Slightly more than one-in-four Americans (28 percent) think that bringing a great book along for Thanksgiving could give them a way to get out of an uncomfortable or awkward conversation with a relative or other guest.

Consumers Look Forward to Reading During Holiday Travel
Because of the hustle and bustle of daily life, particularly during holiday season, more than half of respondents reported that they don’t get to read or enjoy books as much as they would like. In fact, reading tops the list of what most consumers wish they had more time to do, followed by spending time with loved ones and exercise. Travel provides a respite of sorts; 71 percent of respondents think that travel time is a good opportunity to catch up on a good book or magazine they have been meaning to pick up.

Respondents also found that the top five benefits of reading a book while traveling, rated in order, are:

  • Reading is a good pastime if I get delayed while traveling. (56 percent)
  • Reading is relaxing and helps ease the stress of hectic traveling. (53 percent)
  • A good book “transports” me somewhere else. (47 percent)
  • I can catch up on books that I have wanted to read, but normally do not have the time to read. (47 percent)
  • Reading gives me a chance to learn something new. (46 percent)

In addition, when respondents find the time to read a book they enjoy while traveling, 73 percent say that reading makes their trip more relaxing, and 72 percent say reading a book they enjoy while traveling makes their trip more enjoyable. This is a particularly noteworthy finding in today’s travel environment, which is often characterized by stressful and unenjoyable moments.
