Visualizing the weekly bestseller list from 2000-2011. Each "brick" is 1-year, with 2000 on top. Within a brick, each column is a week (Jan on left, Dec on right), with 1st place on top, 10th on bottom. You can see the "decay time" of books as they drift off the bestseller list. Color choices seem to have become more saturated since 2000, and Twilight (big black band) is the undisputed champ.
