The Bestselling Books of 2012

Bestselling Author Gillian Flynn and Oscar Winner Reese Witherspoon

Reese Witherspoon will star in & produce Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl for the screen

The Best Books of 2012 lists look very different from Nielsen’s recently released list of 2012’s Bestselling Books. It’s no surprise E.L. James’ Fifty Shades trilogy dominates the sales list — the book did so well, Random House gave each of its employees a $5000 bonus — but one novel has achieved critical praise and blockbuster sales: Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl. Also impressive is the performance of J.K. Rowling’s The Casual Vacancy. Rowling’s book came out in September; and in just two months, it’s landed at 6th on the  sales list. Check out the full list below and click over to Nielsen for the lists of 2012’s bestselling non-fiction and children’s/YA titles.
