Nielsen Bestsellers Lists
is just around the corner, which is seeing people choose quality reading
material for themselves and their loved ones. The Beat of the Pendulum is there for
the second week (since release), while The
Luminaries is back on the list for the first time in a few
weeks, and there are a couple of other sizable novels that have
maintained their place in the NZ Fiction Top 10. Cookbooks have released
their hold a little in the NZ non-fiction list, with biographies and
sports books becoming more prominent. Aotearoa: The
New Zealand Story is looking to be the top book to unwrap
this Christmas, while two great Christmas-themed titles are likely to be
close on their heels.
