In case you missed the discussion going on in our comment section, the comparative sales charts for January have been delayed because the numbers from Diamond are a bit odd. Marc-Oliver Frisch explains:
For the record, if you’re waiting for the January month-to-month sales columns, it’ll probably be a while. Since everyone’s fairly sure now that there’s been a glitch in Diamond’s source data, we’re holding off on the columns until the numbers have been corrected.
Looking at the Top 300 charts, there are a few very odd things going on. Not only does there seem to be an inexplicable five-percent increase across the board, as I noted a few days ago, but the index points for individual books also seem to be a mess.
We’ll keep you posted.
