Beachy keen: One way to tell summer is here? Look at USA TODAY’s best-seller list. Fiction is dominating the top 50, with 43 titles, or 86 percent, being novels. Every book in the top 10 is fiction.
Fiction consistently has outsold non-fiction in recent years, but summer sees an uptick. (An analysis of 2015’s top 100 USA TODAY best sellers showed that 77 were fiction titles.)
