Most sold nonfiction Amazon books last week: White Fragility holds the top spot again

Books about race hold spots on the list of most sold nonfiction Amazon books

As the Black Lives Matter movement continues, books focused on race continue to hold many of the top spots on the list of most sold nonfiction Amazon books. White Fragility and How to Be an Antiracist keep hold of their top two spots, with movement elsewhere on the list.

Ijeoma Oluo’s So You Want to Talk About Race moves up another spot this week, claiming third place. Me and White Supremacy by Layla F. Saad follows suit, moving into fourth place. The two are certainly worthy books to read. If you haven’t got them yet, I highly recommend them now.

Two new books joined the list this week, with Chris Wallace’s Countdown 1945 making its way into sixth place. This is an important book about the development of the atomic bomb that brought an end to World War II between the U.S. and Japan.

Meanwhile, Burn After Writing joins in 11th place based on pre-sales. It’s the pink version of the book, which is going to be released in October 2020.

The biggest mover down was Unreported Truths about COVID-10 and Lockdowns, which may not be that surprising. While the book is important, there’s still a lot unknown about COVID-19 and each country is treating the virus differently.

As for the biggest mover up, that is Ibram X. Kendi’s Stamped from the Beginning, which joined the list last week. This book isn’t about the current focus on racism, but understanding it from the beginning to understand it today. By learning about the past, it’s possible to enshrine American society today.
