E-Books Will Get Their Own List in the Times

The latest breakthrough for e-books: The New York Times says it will publish best-seller lists for fiction and non-fiction e-books beginning early next year.

The fact in the article that gave me pause: the Times already publishes fourteen different best-seller lists! I'd never bothered to count them and I was faintly amazed that the number was so high. With that many options, I guess I should feel mildly embarrassed when one of the books I work on fails to make any of those lists . . .

  1. I am looking forward to the day the Times starts their Indie Publishing Best Seller list and I bet it happens. They will need to define Indie. I'm curious how the Next Generation Indie Awards defines Indie. In any event, as Cher said, You Can't Stop Time.
