amazon's bestseller of 2013Inferno by Dan Brown is Amazon’s bestseller of 2013!

Yahoo News is reporting that Brown’s thriller topped the charts this year. Other authors who made the bestseller list included Khaled Hosseini, Veronica Roth and Rick Riordan.

It’s a pretty vanilla round-up, I think. I haven’t read the Hosseini book, but I have read Brown and Riordan once each just to try and wasn’t much impressed. As for Roth, I think it’s ironic she was the top kid’s book given how controversial ‘Allegiant’ was. I do think its drubbing was a little undeserved, but at the same time I would hardly rank it as best of the year.

Editor’s Note: Whether or not you agree with Amazon’s lists, why not check out Joanna and Juli’s  best reads for 2013.

"I’m a journalist, a teacher and an e-book fiend. I work as a French teacher at a K-3 private school. I use drama, music, puppets, props and all manner of tech in my job, and I love it. I enjoy moving between all the classes and having a relationship with each child in the school. Kids are hilarious, and I enjoy watching them grow and learn. My current device of choice for reading is my Amazon Kindle Touch, but I have owned or used devices by Sony, Kobo, Aluratek and others. I also read on my tablet devices using the Kindle app, and I enjoy synching between them, so that I’m always up to date no matter where I am or what I have with me."


  1. Is this the (USA) best seller list, or is it the combined list from all of the books sold in all of the various Amazon subsidiaries in all of the markets that Amazon serves?

    I’m not terribly interested in best seller lists per se, but I would be interested to compare the best seller lists of Amazon in all of their markets such as USA, Canada, UK, Ireland, Germany, etc. etc.
