For week ending March 26, 2011, here are the New York Times Top Selling YA / Children's Books. For more information and all top 10's that made the NY Times Bestseller lists, check out their site: NYTimes.
In YA chapter books, three new titles make their debut on the list, coveting the #1, 8 & 9 positions - with two new appearances on the paperback list. It's nice to see some fresh content on the lists for a change!
