Answers:

#1:  Jul 2016…Queen…sold 37,590 copies, at a 50.4% sell-thru!   (Still lots of Brits in Canada!)

#2  Oct 2016…Bruce…sold 27,736 copies  (2nd best of year…The Boss still Rocks!)

#3  May 2016…Streep…sold 25,145   (4th best of year…star fading?)

#4  Feb 2016…Kelly…sold just 20,981 copies   (Worst performer of the year.  Legend in her own mind.)

Bonus Question Answer:

If you guessed it was better then all except the Queen, you are right.  This beauty sold 30,778 copies!

It will be interesting to see how the Aug 2017 issue, featuring Serena Williams will do?  Odds are it will do well!
