Hardcover Best Sellers Paperback Spillover Effect

Here’s something interesting: Many of the books on the NYT hardcover business best sellers list are causing a nice spillover effect on the paperback business best sellers list.

Consider these hardcover books:

1. THE BIG SHORT, by Michael Lewis (2010)
4. OUTLIERS, by Malcolm Gladwell (2008)
9. SUPERFREAKONOMICS, by Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner (2009)

And these much older paperbacks that have been dragged back onto the paperback business list:

1. THE BLIND SIDE, by Michael Lewis (2006)
2. THE TIPPING POINT, by Malcolm Gladwell (2000)
3. FREAKONOMICS, by Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner (2005)
4. LIAR’S POKER, by Michael Lewis  (1989)

In addition to the above, Malcolm Gladwell’s BLINK (2005) is #9 on the regular paperback non fiction list.

Lewis has 3 books on the business list, and Outliers is still #12 on the NYT hardcover nonfiction list. The Blind Side is #1 on the Times paperback nonfiction list.
