The Vampire King debuts at number 4 this week, with Kindle books continuing to reign supreme.
All Kindle, all day, baby. Kindle, and digital sales in general, are on a skyrocketing path to the moon in 2012. George R.R. Martin continues to own the top 5, and with season 2 of the Game of Thrones HBO series opener a little more than a month away, expect to see healthy sales in the series continue.
Looks like a few people got Kindles for Christmas. With e-book sales skyrocketing from $62 million in 2008 to $863 million in 2010, its no surprise. While people purchased hardcovers prior to Christmas to give as gifts, Kindle Fire sales will likely push hardcovers out of the top five for a while. Also notable that smaller, bite-size books are rising in popularity along with e-books. A Modern Witch, below, is available for $1.99 for the Kindle. Its going to be a wild ride in 2012.
This Christmas weekend Stephen King’s Kindle edition swaps place with his hardcover edition for first place, A Game of Thrones jumps in front of A Dance with Dragons, and a .99 Kindle book makes the top 5.
Here’s hoping you receive all your literary wishes this holiday season!
The hardcover versions of the latest by King and Martin take precedence this Christmas week, as it seems like giving a physical object still feels more appropriate as a gift for the moment.
Stephen King sits on top this holiday season, with George R.R. Martin continuing to sell novels like hot cakes.
Stephen King continues to dominate the holiday season, but George R.R. Martin is still scooping up large swaths of bestseller weeks. Its likely Martin will rank first for the annual review.
