One Day regains UK bestseller top spot

25th August 2011

David Nicholls' One Day has become one of the few books to top the UK fiction bestseller list for a third time, following the release of the big screen adaptation of the 2009 novel.

In the last week alone, One Day sold over 60,000 copies across all formats in the UK, outselling the second most popular novel – Lee Child's Worth Dying For – by two copies to one.

The 2010-published paperback edition of the novel sold 32,357 copies last week, according to the Bookseller, with the new film tie-in edition selling 27,780 – meaning it is the first time since 2007 that two versions of the same book have occupied the top two positions on the fiction chart.

It is also the first time a book has gained the bestseller top spot for a third time since Linwood Barclay's No Time for Goodbye in 2008, as One Day was previously top of the charts in both February and December 2010.

The big screen adaptation of the novel, which stars Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess, had its premiere on Tuesday night (August 23rd), and is now on general release in the UK.

To celebrate, here is a far from exhaustive selection of some of the beer literature that can help you better appreciate the delicate arts of brewing and drinking beer.
