The Wall Street Journal To Launch eBook Best Seller Lists

The Wall Street Journal will begin publishing lists of eBook best sellers, beginning this weekend. The New York Times and USA Today both began publishing bestseller lists for eBooks early this year, but the exciting aspect of this news is that Amazon, Apple, Google and Barnes & Noble will be sharing their eBook sales data with Nielsen for the first time to compile the list.

Jonathan Stolper, VP & General Manager of Nielsen BookScan, released this statement: “As consumers and booksellers continue to embrace the potential of e-books, we are very happy to be working with The Wall Street Journal to produce the most accurate best-seller charts available. These new charts uniquely reflect what people are really buying and reading and will most definitely advance the industry’s understanding of e-book best sellers.”

Mashable has more: “…the Journal will display four lists charting book sales: combined ebook and hard copy sales of fiction, combined ebook and hard copy sales of non-fiction, ebook-only sales of fiction, and ebook-only sales of non-fiction.”
