ECPA releases July Bestseller lists
Variety is the word for the Top 50 bestselling books for July 2018. The top two bestselling titles switched places from last month, with Girl Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis (Thomas Nelson) at #1, and Everybody, Always by Bob Goff (Thomas Nelson) following at #2. There are eight new releases scattered among the Top 50.
