Writing.ie are delighted to be bringing you the Irish Bestseller lists from Nielsen BookScan every Saturday.

Nielsen BookScan collects the retail sales information from point of sale systems in more than 35,500 bookshops around the world. The Irish lists are complied by monitoring sales in a selection of key bookstores across Ireland including Dubray, Hughes & Hughes, Eason, The Book Centre, Book Station, Byrne’s Bookstores, O’Mahony’s and Tesco Ireland. Amazon.co.uk is also monitored. It is estimated that coverage is almost 70% of retail book purchases made from within the Republic of Ireland. In a typical week over 41,000 different titles are measured, with an average volume of 234,000 units and a value of €2.5 million.

Due to a slight technical hitch, which we are working on, this page is best viewed in Google Chrome or Firefox.
