Wednesday 28 July 2010
Stieg Larsson's Millennium trilogy continues to hold the top three spots on Amazon's list of best-selling Kindle e-books for the week ending July 19, according to Amazon.com. Apart from those long-standing bestsellers, new summer reads are making their way onto the chart, and old favorite
Eat, Pray, Love winds up back in the top ten.
