It shouldn’t be too surprising that the ninth Outlander book continues to hold the top spot on the list of most read Amazon books for the week.

The Outlander books are big. There’s no doubt about that. It’s one of the reasons the ninth novel, Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone by Diana Gabaldon is still in the top spot on the list of most read books.

It also helps that these books require a second readthrough at the very least. And a lot of fans of the books are going to do that right away. Then we’ve got the fact that some of the books will be early (and on time) Christmas gifts.

But what about the rest of the list? Was there anything new?

The Eye of the World up, Leviathan Falls down

There was one new book on the list of most read Amazon books. Jodi Picoult’s Wish You Were Here made it to the list in 18th place. We’re sure to see that move up the list during the week.

There was some interesting movement on the list, though. The Eye of the World by Robert Jordan got into second place. With the first season ending on Dec. 24, that’s not all too surprising. What’s also not surprising is that The Great Hunt by Robert Jordan moved up a spot. People are ready for the next part of the story.

Leviathan Falls by James S.A. Corey lost six places during the week. It just holds onto a Top 15 spot, but we’re sure to see it drop again. The ninth book is great, but it’s not getting transformed into the Amazon series. The Expanse is coming to an end with the sixth season; at least, in the format that we know it.

Fallout by Craig Alanson was the biggest mover up the list. It gained five places, just missing out on the Top 10. It’s just the second week on the list so we’ll see how it performs this week.
