NYT to Start e-book Best Seller ListNovember 12th, 2010 - 1:47 am ICT by Angela Kaye Mason
Nov 11 (THAINDIAN NEWS) The New York Times has announced on Wednesday that in acknowledgement of the huge growing sales of e-books and such, they are going to begin publication of a new ‘e-book Best Seller List’ which will feature both fiction and nonfiction work.
This list will be started next year, with data from publishers being contributed weekly to compile it. Chain bookstores, independent booksellers, and online retailers will also add to the contributions, as well as other sources.
The New York Times has been publishing best seller lists since 1935. Other known publishers of these lists are The Los Angeles Times, USA Today, and Publishers Weekly. The editor of The New York Times, Judith Elder stated that they have been creating the system which will track the sales of e-books for two years.
She went on to say, “We’ve had our eye on e-book sales since e-books began. It was clear that e-books were taking a greater and greater share of total sales, and we wanted to be able to tell our readers which titles were selling and how they fit together with print sales.”
