     A lot of turnover in the top-15 this week, with a surprise number one and many new reviews displacing the usual suspects. Otherwise, traffic remained fairly flat at the site for the month.

For recent bestseller lists, go to previous lists.
For annual and older lists, see also the 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, , 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 , 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020 lists.
