The New York Times Adds Audiobook Best-Seller Lists

The New York Times announced that it will begin publishing monthly Audiobook Best-Seller Lists online starting March 8, 2018. They will feature top 15 fiction and top 15 nonfiction lists based on the previous month’s sales of digital and physical audiobooks. The first print version will appear in the Sunday Book Review on March 18. According to the press release, “Moving forward, the Best-Seller Lists, which previously published online on Fridays, will now publish on Thursday mornings.” Additionally, the Paperback Lists will now feature 15 books instead of 10.

“The vibrant growth of audiobooks in the industry has created a need for an impartial, reliable source for tracking and reporting the top-selling audiobooks across the country,” says Pamela Paul, editor of The New York Times Book Review. “The Times recognizes the increased reader and listener interest in audiobooks, as well as in the Book Review’s increasing depth of coverage of audiobooks, and we’re thrilled we’ll be able to provide them independent data they can rely on.”
