International Bestsellers, January 2021

Every month, Publishing Trends runs fiction international bestsellers lists from four territories–France, Germany, Italy, and Spain. This month, our four regular territories are joined by two more: South Africa and Sweden. Those books that have been published in English are listed with their official English-language title. All others are translated as literally as possible from the original. Where applicable, the US publisher is listed after the local publisher, separated by a “/”. The lists are taken from major newspapers or national retailers, which are noted at the bottom of each list.

    it would be so helpful if you could have the international bestseller list available as a PDF download. Because each list is a closed picture – it’s impossible to annotate or highlight individual titles and share with colleagues. Cheers!

    Thanks for this helpful feedback! Including a PDF download in the posts should be simple, so we’ll aim to do so going forward.
