List of The New York Times number-one books of 2017

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The American daily newspaper The New York Times publishes multiple weekly lists ranking the best-selling books in the United States. The lists are split in three genres—fiction, nonfiction and children's books. Both the fiction and nonfiction lists are further split into multiple lists.

Changes to the list[edit]

Beginning on February 5, 2017, The New York Times introduced revisions to multiple categories in the publication. The revisions included the elimination of the graphic novel/manga and the mass market paperback lists as well as the middle grade e-book and young adult e-book lists.[1]

Fiction[edit]

The following list ranks the number-one best-selling fiction books, in the combined print and e-books category.[2] The most frequent weekly best seller of the year is Camino Island by John Grisham with 5 weeks at the top of the list, followed by The Shack by William P. Young with 4 weeks.
