Amazon China, one of the largest online booksellers, unveiled the bestselling books in China for the first half of 2017 on Tuesday, disclosing Chinese people's reading habits.

Japanese author Keigo Higashino's Miracles of the Namiya General Store topped the list of the most popular paper books, followed by late Chinese writer Yang Jiang's We Three and Israeli historian Yuval Noah's Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow.

In the list of paid eBooks on Kindle, the top three places were taken by Chinese writer Zhou Meisen's In the Name of the People, Keigo Higashino's Miracles of the Namiya General Store and Fall of Giants – book one of British author Ken Follett's historical Century Trilogy.

Amazon has also released a ranking of Chinese cities where people read most. Hefei and Zhengzhou occupy the first and second spot respectively for the second straight year. The ranking was based on the ratio of books sales compared to the volume of all products sold on Amazon during the first six months of the year.
