We know you love our recommendations - but sometimes you also want to see what the general British book Buyer is reading. So, we have created this category to show you the current Top 10 best selling books in the general book trade in the UK. All great books to read as demonstrated by their 'top books' status.

The data comes from, and is copyrighted to Nielsen BookScan.
