R = Item returning to the list after having been off for 1 or more weeks

  • Clinton Cash, Chuck Dixon & Brett R. Smith's adaptation of Peter Schweizer's anti-Clinton screed, showed up in the middle of the chart a couple of weeks ago then disappeared, seemingly never to be seen again. But then earlier this week it shot up to the #1 spot, and whenever you see that happen you know it had some kind of mention in the wider mass media (no doubt this time on some right-wing talk show). It is currently #11 on the overall Amazon book chart, and the Kindle edition also makes an appearance on the chart.
  • There must have been a Captain America collection Kindle sale earlier in the week, because three of them show up in the top ten this week.
  • The Suicide Squad movie hit theaters last weekend, setting a few August box office records despite mostly poor reviews from critics. In response we get two Harley Quinn and two Suicide Squad collections on the chart this week (with a 3rd Suicide Squad book bubbling just under at position #51).
  • Other new books on the chart this week include a Darth Vader collection, a collection of Super Mario Adventure strips, the first issue of All Star Batman (the only Rebirth comic on the chart this week), and a Pokémon Adventures manga box set.
