Kindle best-sellers: 'Eat, Pray, Love' gets pre-film boost
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.
Daniel Silva's The Rembrandt Affair is the only new book to make its debut in the week's top ten. Released as an e-book on July 20, the novel is the American author's latest in a string of best-selling spy novels.
Another popular summer read to recently earn a spot on the best-seller list is Jennifer Weiner's Fly Away Home, the story of a wife of a politician in the wake of an extra-marital affair and her evolving relationship with her two grown daughters.
