I want to try making a bestselling publisher list based on average sales per title, but that’s going to take a little bit of time and I don’t have it today.

BTW, is it best-selling, best selling, or bestselling? Tried searching for the answer, but I found it used each way by people who should know better.

    I’m happy to know I might be able to actually help out with this one. My first thought was that it should be “best-selling,” so I decided to check a couple of sources. does indeed list “best-seller” and “best-selling,” but not best seller, etc.
    Unfortunately, the AP Stylebook (sorry, but I’m a journalist) lists “best seller.” So, I guess either of those would be acceptable, though I’d probably go with the dictionary definition. 😉
    There’s my geeky moment for the day!
