Top 100 Bestsellers of 2021

November 10, 2021

For your interest here is a list of the the top 100 bestselling books at Housmans in 2021 – from 1st January to the present day. Of course sales aren’t everything, and the difference between a book in 200th places and 100th isn’t all that much, but nonetheless it’s still interesting to see what books people have been gravitating to the most.

The list naturally favours books published earlier in the year or before, as they have had more time on the shelves.

Don’t forget, all the following titles are available from our webshop!
