Last-minute pre-Christmas shopping, post-holiday rush help sales
For the week of December 24 to December 30, volumes 25 through 27 of Naruto were again represented on USA Today's Top 150 Best-Selling Books list. In the previous week, only Volume 27 had been listed at #135; over the holiday week, it sold well enough to jump to #78. Volume 26, which had dropped from its former best-seller status, returned to the #89 spot, while Volume 25, also off the list a week before, reappeared at #113. Warriors: Warrior's Refuge, a graphic novel drawn by James Barry and inspired by Erin Hunter's Warriors novels, debuted on the list as Tokyopop's only entry at #96.
