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 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.
- 11/22/63: A Novel (Kindle) by Stephen King
- 11/22/63: A Novel (Hardcover) by Stephen King
- A Dance with Dragons (Kindle) by George R.R. Martin
- A Game of Thrones (Kindle) by George R.R. Martin
- Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West (Audiobook) by Gregory Maguire
George R.R. Martin continues to own the majority of books in the top 5 with Erin Morgenstern holding first place. Stephen King’s latest rounds out the top 5 this week.
Martin is finally dethroned after spending 13 weeks in first place, and pushed not into second, but third place, with The Night Circus and The Way of Shadows vaulting into first and second, respectively.
As we pause today and reflect on the last 10 years, don’t forget that during this most recent, George R.R. Martin reigns supreme.
Its looking like GRRM is going to make a run through the holiday season, as we hit Labor Day weekend, and he still rules the top 5. I can’t imagine sales slowing over the next few months.
George R.R. Martin’s 4-novel set drops out of 5th place, making room for the fourth book in the series, A Feast for Crows. A top five filled with the first five books in your series? Not bad, Mr. Martin, not bad.
