And all of sudden we’re more than halfway through the year! Right on cue, we have a new David Walliams – in top place, of course. MegaMonster is brand new out just a couple of days before the charts were compiled and already steaming ahead with around 1500 more sales than second place. Other than Walliams, it’s a quiet week for book sales; from no. 2 down, no one gets above a thousand sales.

Choosing this week’s featured book, we’ve decided for one that should get people out and about, and enjoying whatever summer weather we can get. The Wildflowers of Ireland: A Field Guide by Zoe Devlin is an updated version of her book and has gone into the charts at no. 7 in the Paperback Non-Fiction chart. Here’s the blurb:

Discover the fascinating world of Ireland’s diverse and astonishing collection of native wildflowers. This new edition reflects the many changes to our botanical knowledge since The Wildflowers of Ireland was first published in 2014. There’s updated information on the distribution of native wildflowers, along with more than 90 additional species, all beautifully photographed by the author.

For ease of identification, the species are divided into colour categories and within each category the species are grouped by, for example, the number of petals in the flower or whether the species carries its flowers in a cluster or a spike.

In easily understood terminology, focus is put on the main identifying features of each plant, by colour, size, shape of flower, leaf, habitat, flowering season, and where in Ireland it might be found.

This is a must for enthusiasts of all ages and levels of experience.

And now this week’s charts with the Top 20 followed by the Top 10 in each category.
