In March, NPD BookScan underwent a transformation and rebranded as Circana Books, following the merger of NPD Group and Information Resources, Inc. (IRI) in 2022. This dynamic company collects comprehensive weekly point-of-sale data on print books from a vast network of over 16,000 locations, encompassing e-tailers, chains, mass merchandisers, independent bookstores, and more. Circana BookScan provides extensive coverage, accounting for approximately 85% of the U.S. trade print book market. Notably, the rankings on this chart are determined based on piece sales, and to ensure accuracy, ICv2 excludes titles classified as primarily text or art books, thus refining the rankings.
