Over the years, the book industry’s bestseller lists have multiplied and grown to include emerging formats from paperback and mass market to today’s e-books, But a new bestseller list will take an innovative approach to ranking digital titles – one that, for the first time, accounts for pricing and category differences.
The Digital Book World E-book Best-Seller list makes its debut today. Jeremy Greenfield, editorial director of Digital Book World, joins Copyright Clearance Center’s Christopher Kenneally with details.
“The DBW E-book Best-Seller List tracks the e-books that are selling broadly across the major e-retail channels, in practically real-time fashion,” says Greenfield. “Every Monday we’ll be publishing, and reporting on, what sold most the week prior. To get a true idea of what e-books are most popular among all readers, this is the list.”
