What were the most popular books of 2017? No one knows better than Amazon, a massive seller of them.

Amazon’s Most Read Books of 2017 lists consist of reading data from Kindles and Audible (who sell audiobooks). On the fiction side, a few Harry Potters and one Game of Thrones take up half the list. In the #1 spot is The Handmaid’s Tale, the book that inspired Hulu’s massively popular (and award-winning) TV drama of the same name.

On the non-fiction side there are a few true stories and a couple of self-help books, with The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck sitting at #1.
