Boxed Sets

By Sarah Yurch | September 22 2023 | FictionNonfictionHolidaysPromo Opportunity

In the weeks leading up to the holidays, boxed sets can sell over four times as much as they sell in an average week throughout the rest of the year. And for good reason: boxed sets are a perfect gift and a solid value for budget-conscious shoppers.

The top selling sets are almost always children’s titles—Middle Grade and Chapter Books in particular. Beloved Classic series are perennial heavy hitters, and in recent years popular Manga series and Media Tie-Ins have been making waves.

On the adult side, genre is king with Science Fiction and Fantasy boxed sets in several of the top selling spots. Cooking is another popular category that often pays off in retail dollars, thanks to higher average list prices per volume. And we can’t forget Classics, with beautiful hardcover sets that bring literary and aesthetic value to bookshelves.
