No change in the top slot although sales are down for Dan Brown’s Inferno with booksellers reporting a quieter week, as reader’s enjoyed the sunshine and spent time on the beach rather than in the shops! New at No. 2 is Sylvia Day’s Entwined with You demonstrating that steamy fiction is popular even as the temperatures rise. Kevin Barry’s IMPAC win, sees City of Bohane hitting the No. 12 slot, set, we hope, to climb.
