    The Digital Book World E-Book Best-Seller list tracks e-book sales ranking and price data across six major e-book retailers with the goal of providing the most accurate picture of which e-books are most often purchased by consumers and at what price point. The full methodology is available here.

    This week, Liane Moriarty’s The Husband’s Secret gained three spots to overtake last week’s number one e-book, Killing Jesus: A History by Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard.

    The average e-book bestseller price climbed higher. Nearly all of the top-ranked titles above $3 this week are from legacy publishers, with Penguin Random House titles accounting for 10 of the top 25 listed e-books.
