Clean-sweep in the paperback fiction charts for Penguin Random House

Penguin Random House has achieved a feat that has never been done before. This week, our titles occupy every one of the top 10 positions in Nielsen's Paperback Fiction Chart. This is the first time a publisher/publishing house has ever enjoyed a clean-sweep of the charts.

Penguin Random House’s previous best performance in the Paperback Fiction charts was having eight titles in the Top Ten, which was last achieved in August 2014.

Leading the way is Paula Hawkins' The Girl on the Train, which continues its incredible run by selling over 35,000 copies in paperback. Jojo Moyes has 3 entries in the top 10, including 2 with the same book, thanks to the film tie-in of Me Before You.
