With electronic book sales continuing to rise,
The New York Times will add digital sales to its weekly list of best-selling books, to be published online this Friday, February 11.
The new E-Book Best Sellers List will be out in print in the Sunday edition of the newspaper, February 13. In addition, another list will combine best-selling print and e-books, reports the MediaBistro blog.
A preview listed James Patterson's crime novel co-written with Michael Ledwidge, Tick Tock, at the top of the fiction lists for both e-books and combined print/e-books.
Laura Hillenbrand's World War II book Unbroken is at the top of the nonfiction e-book and combined lists.
In eighth on the e-book list, The Help by Kathryn Stockett ranked higher in e-book sales than in print, coming in ninth on the combined list.
Other authors who made the top ten on the e-book list include Stieg Larsson and John Grisham.
According to the Association of American Publishers' monthly sales report, the rise of e-books is explosive. The AAP reports that 2010 e-book sales increased 118.9% from the same period in 2009. This year the increases are expected to continue to grow.
