Kindle best-sellers: Steady climb for 'Eat, Pray, Love'
Wednesday 11 August 2010
Stieg Larsson's Millennium trilogy remains untouched in its reign on top of Amazon's list of best-selling Kindle e-books for the week ending August 8, according to Amazon.com. Those three books, which have now sold more than one million Kindle copies, hold the top three spots on the chart, which also sees Elizabeth Gilbert's
Eat, Pray, Love making a steady climb.
Gilbert's 2007 autobiographical novel, about her trek through Italy, India, and Indonesia following her divorce, reappeared on the Kindle best-seller list two weeks ago, first in eighth place, then in seventh, and now in fifth. Readers who have so far skipped the book are now jumping into action, just before the book's film adaptation starring Julia Roberts makes its debut in North American theaters.
On August 5, Amazon announced the launch of a UK Kindle Store, meaning that Kindle users in the UK no longer have to pay currency conversion fees and have access to Kindle blogs. The best-seller chart for the UK Store, once up and running, is likely to show a significantly different list of titles, as many popular British authors' books were not available to them through the Amazon.com store.
Kindle weekly best-sellers:
1. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo - Stieg Larsson (1=position last week)
2. The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest - Stieg Larsson (2)
3. The Girl Who Played with Fire - Stieg Larsson (3)
4. Fly Away Home - Jennifer Weiner (4)
5. Eat, Pray, Love - Elizabeth Gilbert (7)
6. Star Island - Carl Hiaasen (6)
7. The Rembrandt Affair - Daniel Silva (5)
8. The Glass Rainbow - James Lee Burke (10)
9. Sh*t My Dad Says - Justin Halpern (re-entry)
10. The Search - Nora Roberts (re-entry)
Amazon's Kindle e-reader is available internationally. Kindle e-books can also be read on the Apple iPhone and iPod Touch, PCs and Macs, BlackBerry and Android phones, and tablet computers including the iPad.
