According to a news article in today's (1/6/06) Charlotte Observer,

The Book Standard on Thursday released its list of the books that sold the most, with "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" the runaway winner.
The novel, by J.K. Rowling, had more first-day sales (4,106,000 copies) than any other book for the entire year, Book Standard officials said.
Rounding out the rest of the top 10 were:

• "A Million Little Pieces," by James Frey (Anchor Books).
• "The Kite Runner," by Khaled Hosseini (Riverhead).
• "1776," by David McCullough (Simon & Schuster).
• "The Da Vinci Code," by Dan Brown (Doubleday).
• "The World Is Flat," by Thomas L. Friedman (Farrar, Straus & Giroux).
• "The Purpose-Driven Life," by Rick Warren (Zondervan).
• "Angels & Demons," by Dan Brown (Pocket Star).
• "You, The Owner's Manual," by Mehmet Oz and Michael Roizen (HarperCollins).
• "Eldest," by Christopher Paolini (Knopf Books for Young Readers).
The rankings are based on sales data from Nielsen BookScan.
