The third and fourth spots were "12 Rules for Life" by Canadian author Jordan B. Peterson and "Educated" by Tara Westover. The fifth bestselling book was "The Wonky Donkey" by Craig Smith, the 2010 children's book that rose to sudden fame thanks to a viral YouTube video of a Scottish grandmother reading the book to her grandson. The fact that the news media is following what are the top selling printed books appears to be adding to the sale of more books.
