Explore PRH’s Trending Titles with ‘Today’s Top Books’

by The Author Newsletter Team|April, 2021

The world is noisy—with all the books, music, and TV shows released daily, we know it can feel daunting for readers to decide what to tune in to next. That’s why Penguin Random House is rolling out Today’s Top Books, a custom-built website that uses data to serve up the five trending books of each day. 

This new user-friendly site scours social platforms and websites including Amazon, Google, Goodreads, and more to zero in on the five PRH books—frontlist and backlist—that everyone’s actually reading right now. The site will be updated every day, and the positions of books will vary depending on how hot they are in that moment. Once you’ve selected a book, the page makes it easy for you to read an excerpt and purchase a copy directly from Penguin Random House or from your favorite bookseller.

In addition to each day’s top five, you can access the archive to see past picks and how books have changed positions over time.


We hope this fun tool will make it easy for readers to find their next great story, and we would love your help spreading the word! Keep an eye on the charts daily to see if your book is trending, and share with your readers using #todaystopbooks.
