Scots among top sellers

23rd February 2010

A recent survey by Nielsen Bookscan has revealed that an old Scottish favourite is among the top selling books in 2009. In their 2009 Scottish Review, Nielsen revealed that the Scottish book market actually out perfomed the United Kingdom, and the sixth biggest selling book in Scotland was the 'Broons Annual: Scotland's Happy Family'. This may come as little surprise in a nation which has always cherished publications, and broadcasts, containing Scots language content that has reflected the culture of the country.
