Light Novel Sales

Information
Originally created as a temporary home for sales ranking thread, this seems to have exploded somehow into something far more... If anyone feels willing and able to make a basic club layout, please let me know. Looking for help with: - Finding circulation figures from publishers - Someone to do a layout for the club (a banner, club picture and formatting of text is probably enough) - Suggestions for other ideas. What I will not be adding: - Individual retailer rankings, other than the book depository one that already has a thread. They're generally not very useful. Anything that I deem is useful will be linked in the club comments - feel free to link to these here yourselves as well. - POS ranks. These are useful, but I feel they're more effort than they're worth. If anyone else feels as though they have enough time and dedication to post them regularly, I will consider letting them. From past experience each one takes about 2.5 hours to do. There are 2 relevant sets each of daily, weekly, monthly, half yearly (both half years unlike oricon) and yearly rankings.

I got fed up with the threads being so far behind so they've been updated - but only to mid August. The rest of August should be added within the week, unless I decide to do September as well before the next update.

No backlog volumes of TenSura (or anything else) on the rankings this week.

TenSura volume 1 was 24th on honto's light novel ranking for last week. I hope it gets on the Oricon rankings - there's obviously a huge backlog of sales there that we don't have the figures for.
Last week 24th on honto was 20th on the Oricon light novel rankings, but obviously it can vary from week to week as honto is just one retailer.

The main threads should be updated at some point next week by the way.

I imagine that's how most people use this, yes.

Feel free to ask any questions you may have, although I can't guarantee answers.

Hey, thanks for the invite! This is going to be an interesting club that I'll check from time to time (and contribute too when I have any chance). I'll probably be asking questions about light novels too as I have little knowledge regarding this medium but not now at least.

I'm going to send some invites to people who might be interested. If you have received an invite and are not interested, just get rid of the invite.

Data now fully updated in the Oricon sales threads. This club is now publicly visible.

Time to update some links.
