Sunbury Press Bestsellers: The Bestselling Print Books of August 2020

August 2020 has come and gone. And you know what that means? It's time to celebrate our bestsellers!

We have published over 700 books. Not bad, right? Going strong since 2004, we have always prided ourselves in our ability to find, publish, and promote the highest-quality books we can find. Since it's easy to get lost in the workflow, we like to step back at the end of every month to celebrate just how many readers were able to find our books during a 30-day period.

And August 2020 did NOT let us down. Both new books and older books reached the top five in their categories. Before we get into the top 100 books sold, check out these superstars who reached the top five print books in both fiction and nonfiction.
