Not much has changed between this week’s e-book best-seller list and last’s, with few titles making any big leaps or taking any deep spills.
Laura Hillenbrand’s “Unbroken” heads into its second week at No. 1 as the Angelina Jolie-directed film adaptation tops $102 million at the box office.
Earlier this week Publishers Lunch reported Simon & Schuster and Macmillan have both begun exercising the recently regained right to set their own prices on e-books sold through Amazon. Since this week’s roundup encompasses the week ending on the 10th, it might not reflect that return to agency e-book pricing.
At all events, there’s only one title by either of those publishers within the week’s top 25, Anthony Doerr’s Simon & Schuster-published book “All the Light We Cannot See.”
The average price of a best-selling e-book nevertheless took an upturn this week, from $4.36 to $5.52.
