Nielsen Publishers Marketplace BookScan provides unlimited searches of the BookScan US
point-of-sale database. You can search by:
Each title match initially presents sales numbers for the most recent
week; the year-to-date; and the title's lifetime, with breakdowns for
the retail and discount/other (which includes online, mass
merchandisers, and specialty retailers) sales channels.
More detailed data screens show weekly sales data for up to the past 13
weeks, with breakdowns by sales channel and geographic region; DMA sales
districts; and/or week-by-week sales since the book's release.
Author reports show headline sales for all of a particular
author's works on a single page, in order of publication.
Weekly bestseller charts show sales figures for the top 50 or 100
titles across over 70 sub-categories. There are general lists; a dozen
fiction genres; more than 40 nonfiction categories; and over 15 specific
lists for categories of juvenile fiction and nonfiction.
Our special Sales Tracker lets you store up to 10 ISBNs in a
single list for regular reference. (And you can upgrade your account to
store more ISBNs if you wish. Regardless, you can look up and view
reports for as many ISBNs as you like.)
Nielsen BookScan is the industry's only source of actual book
