WHAT I LEARNED: A few weeks ago I recently received my hardcopy of the new “2022 World Service Conference Summary” (item # P-46). Pasted below are images from pages 80-81 that show some stats for 2021’s best selling Al-Anon books, booklets, and the “Al-Anon Faces Alcoholism 2021” (item # N/A) outreach magazine. It’s surprising that the book “Intimacy in Alcoholic Relationships” (item # B-33) is still on the Spanish & French lists, but hasn’t been on the English one since 2019’s list of best sellers. I’m also happy to see that “Alateen-a day at a time” (item # B-10) is still showing up in the French sales! 🙌 As far as the AFA 2021 outreach magazine, it looks like the Covid-19 pandemic still affected sales of the hardcopies 😷 but, per pages 101-102 of the 2022 Summary, the number of downloads actually increased! 😃
FYI: If you’d like to see the best selling books/booklets of 2020 for comparison, click here.
**BONUS CAL QUESTION: What brand new book’s title was revealed in the new “2022 World Service Conference Summary”? (Hint: see my tweet from October 6th, 2022 or check out page 95 of the Summary!)
