2022: A Year of Book Sales in Review

Every year, I review the books purchased from Amazon by AAR readers. In 2022, our sales dropped, likely due to Kindle Unlimited. Through our links, readers bought 15,280 books for a total of $132,303.00 in 2022, compared to 17,591 books for $151,071.00 in 2021. The average cost per book also decreased slightly, from $4.95 to $4.34. Historical romance continues to be the most popular genre among our book buyers, with 16 of the top 25 books being from that genre, four written by Julie Anne Long.

Here are the top 25 best-selling books of 2022, ranked in order of popularity:
