India is the world’s 7th largest book market but didn't have its own credible, regularly updated list of bestselling books, until now. To help Indian readers simplify their search for fiction, non-fiction, and children’s books, the Himalayan Writing Retreat (HWR) announces India’s first comprehensive weekly bestseller book list titled ‘The HWR Bestseller List.’
HWR is a residential learning center for writers founded in the Uttarakhand Himalayas in 2016 by author couple, Chetan Mahajan and Dr.Vandita Dubey. It offers writing and related workshops online as well as in the Himalayas.
HWR will release a weekly bestseller list in India with the top 50 Fiction, top 50 Non- Fiction, and Top 25 list of children’s books. The list will comprise book-sales data backed by global marketing research firm Nielsen. It includes data from physical bookstores across the country as well as from online channels like Amazon and Flipkart. It will cover approximately 60% of all print book sales in India, making it the most comprehensive, credible bestseller list in the country.
The HWR team will analyze and present monthly and quarterly trends and commentary on the data from Nielsen as well.
The list is now available at https://www.himalayanwritingretreat.com/bestselling-books-in-india/.
