PW: Regional Champs: Behind the Bestsellers

Updated: Jan 24, 2022


The week’s debuts include the #1 book in the country, How to Do the Work, by self-described "holistic psychologist" Nicole LePera, whose daily aphorisms have a readership of 3.5 million on Instagram. Her book resonated in the Pacific and Mountain regions in particular, while the #5 book in the country, The Code Breaker by Walter Isaacson, was tops in New England; it’s the "lively biography," per our starred review, of Nobel Prize–winning CRISPR chemist Jennifer Doudna.

Another new release, Surviving Savannah by Patti Callahan, is #11 in hardcover fiction, and ruled the East South Central region. More than half the print copies were sold in the Birmingham, Ala., area, where the author lives part-time; Callahan signed copies for Alabama Booksmith as part of its First Editions Club.
