NYT to Rank Best Seller eBooks

It's official -- early next year, the New York Times will begin publishing a new list of best-selling eBooks, fiction and non-fiction. They will also redesign the section of its Sunday Book Review that features the best-seller lists.

The Los Angeles Times reports that E-book sales are headed to $1 billion.

The International Digital Publishing Forum collects quarterly US trade retail eBook sales in conjunction with the Association of American Publishers.

If you haven't read it yet, click on over to J.A. Konrath's awesome blog where he announced his eBook sales topped $100K -- and offers advice on e-publishing and makes predictions on the future of eBooks.


  1. Kathleen - As though it weren't already clear enough, your post is a crystal-clear reminder that the future of books and reading will include E-books. They are here now, and they will be here. Thanks for this update.

  2. Yep, even I, a diehard bookie, love my Kindle. I think keeping up with a constantly changing and expanding world is challenging--but so exciting! Good report, Kathleen, thanks.


  3. Hi Margot,
    I knew when the stats & money spoke loud enough, it couldn't be ignored. This must have been what folks felt when horses/carriages were giving way to automobiles. I cannot see kids in school in the future lugging around textbooks will be a thing of the past. We are at the precipice of a major change. Of course, there will always be a demand for "paper" books ~ there's just nothing like it...the touch, the smell, etc...

    Hi Madeline,
    I love my Nook, too. My son now has an iPad. My mom has a Kindle. It is exciting!

    Thanks for stopping by today, ladies!
