ABSTRACT
This article presents a list of top publishers and booksellers. Random House Inc., is in the number one spot with 21 titles with a combined 75 weeks on the bestseller list, assisted by Dean Koontz's "The Face," which is enjoying its fifth week on the list and Mark Haddon's "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time," which debuted on the list at No. 16. Mysteries also remain solid, with Dan Brown's "Angels & Demons," published by Simon & Schuster imprint Pocket Star, holding at number one with a total of 47 weeks on the list. "Deception Point," on the list for 27 weeks, is another strong title for Simon & Schuster. Romance novels have a tendency to become more popular heading into the summer months. The Romance Writers of America's last estimate of the paperback fiction segment shows that just over half of paperback fiction sales are romance novels.
