I didn't make 'The New York Times' bestseller list until 'Charmed Thirds,' and then again for 'Fourth Comings.' It gave me a certain validation, and it certainly helps position me for future books, but it's not something I think about on a daily basis.

WHAT DOES BESTSELLER MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Bestseller

A bestseller is a book that is identified as extremely popular by its inclusion on lists of currently top selling or frequently borrowed titles that are based on publishing industry and book trade figures and library circulation statistics and then published by newspapers, magazines, or bookstore chains. Some lists are broken down into classifications and specialities. The New York Times Best Seller list is one of the best-known bestseller lists for the US. The New York Times Best Seller list tracks National and Independent book stores, as well as sales from major Internet retailers such as Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Another well-regarded list is published by Publishers Weekly. In everyday use, the term bestseller is not usually associated with a specified level of sales, and may be used very loosely indeed in publisher's publicity. Bestsellers tend not to be books considered of superior academic value or literary quality, though there are exceptions. Lists simply give the highest-selling titles in the category over the stated period. Some books have sold many more copies than contemporary "bestsellers", but over a long period of time.

Definition of bestseller in the English dictionary

The definition of bestseller in the dictionary is a book, record, CD, or other product that has sold in great numbers, esp over a short period. Other definition of bestseller is the author of one or more such books, etc.

Famous quotes and sentences with the word bestseller.
1
Frank Abagnale
When 'Catch Me If You Can' was published back in 1980, I never dreamed that it would become a bestseller, much less a major motion picture and now a big Broadway musical. What's amazing about the book is that it has never gone out of print.

'The Mortal Instruments' is based on a series of novels by Cassandra Clare; it has been a New York Times bestseller, so it is pretty popular.
