Bookwalker.jp 2019 yearly rankings (light novels)

These rankings are series rankings, not volume rankings. It also only includes series that have had new volumes released in the past year. The overall rankings list (the top one) has gaps as things that are not light novels (mostly manga) have been left out. This treatment has not been applied to the literature rankings, so there are a couple of non-light novels on there.

These rankings cover bookwalker ONLY but this is a major source of light novel sales, so is worth including despite being limited to a single site.

Obviously this is the Japanese bookwalker, not the global one.

The site as a whole seems to have shifted in favour of manga sales rather than light novels, based on these rankings.

Figures in brackets are last year’s rankings when appropriate.
