Delhi, 2018: 2018 has been a year of many accolades for award-winning novelist Twinkle Khanna, who has now become the highest-selling female author of 2018, according to the top ten list of the Nielsen BookScan, the country’s most authoritative sales chart. Nielsen Book is a leading provider of transaction and sales analysis services internationally. The Nielsen BookScan includes sales data from all major online retailers, national/regional chain stores and independent stores in India.
This year Khanna was also the top-selling female author for Crossword, the country’s largest bookshop chain. Pyjamas Are Forgiving is Juggernaut’s fastest moving title and Khanna’s fastest selling book.
Says Twinkle about her journey, ‘I am overwhelmed by the response Pyjamas Are Forgiving and my previous books have received. I have always been immersed in the world of words as a reader and now I am grateful that I have found a place in it as a writer as well.’
