In both the USA and UK this month, diet and food books continue to be lower than the rest of the year as the weather gets colder and people get ready for the holidays.
In the USA, vegan / plant fed diet and vegetarian books remain high on the bestsellers lists, with the popularity of the anti-wheat Wheat Belly dropping. Vegan/vegetarian titles include Forks Over Knives, The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Plant-Based Nutrition, The China Study, Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease, The Vegan Slow Cooker, and Quick-Fix Vegetarian. In the UK, Dukan continues to reign supreme, although it’s dropped on the overall charts
The positions in the bestselling charts are according to a snapshot from Amazon. The number in brackets next to the top titles is the ranking in all books – i.e. The 17 Day Diet is the no. 33 top selling book in the USA on Amazon.
