Top-Selling Fiction in 2008

Here are the fifteen bestsellers in fiction for 2008 at Broadway Books. I'm thrilled to see that The Highest Tide is still near the top -- what a great book! Jim Lynch's next novel will be published in June 2009, so we all have something more to look forward to. (FYI: I made the editorial decision not to include Young Adult fiction in this list but to put out a list of YA fiction separately.) If you particularly liked any of these novels, keep in mind that in most cases we have other books by these writers, so be sure to give them a try as well. One of my favorite books from the list this year was Night Train to Lisbon.
