The New York Times has augmented their children’s bestseller list for the better. They are now separating hardcover middle grade and young adult titles from paperback and e-book bestsellers. This will obviously be beneficial towards young readers, but also authors.
I really like this move because in the past paperback titles were overwhelming new hardcover titles, and often, the same authors were dominating the list for weeks at a time, despite the book being several years old. Having separation between hardcover and paperback will be good for readers, giving us a sense of what is new and trending.
