Certain things obviously have weekly sales charts.
Box Office is one. And that’s done across countries, so there’s US (really North America) box office in Variety, Hollywood Reporter and so on. UK box office, presumably India, S Africa and so on.
Records – both albums and singles I guess still now? Main chart, R&B, C&W etc in the US.
Books, hardback and paperback. Fiction, non-fiction. Genre and so on, depending upon how far down one wants to go.
And then it all gets a bit hazy for me. Games perhaps? Is there some officially recognised – or un-official that everyone does recognise – chart of sales? That people look at and go “Oooh, that’s number 1!”?
And what else is there that has such charts?
What I’m looking for are weekly releases of these sorts of things. Something that might then be written up by a newspaper or two (box office most certainly is) and which people tend to search for (box office ditto).
Movies, records, books, what else?
