A big box office weekend for the film adaptation of John Green’s “The Fault in Our Stars” (Penguin Random House) has the e-book once again atop this week’s e-book bestseller list.

For the second week in a row, a Hachette title tops the DBW E-book Bestseller List. “The Target” by David Baldacci was the bestselling e-book for the week ending May 3, selling for $12.74.

Amazon Publishing joins an extremely exclusive club this week on the e-book bestseller list: publishers with more than one No. 1 bestseller this year. Until this week, HarperCollins was the exclusive member of that club, with its “Divergent” hit taking the No. 1 spot this year all but three times, losing it once to Hachette, once […] more »

“Divergent” is this year’s runaway top bestselling e-book in the U.S. — but it’s not the best-selling e-book this week. (In the UK, at the London Book Fair, the buzz around HarperCollins is about why “Divergent” is selling comparatively well abroad.) The juggernaut has been stopped and sits at No. 2 on the Digital Book World […] more »

While “Divergent” and its sequel “Insurgent” are still Nos. 1 and 2 on this week’s e-book bestseller list, a new title from bestselling author Nora Roberts has spiked to No. 3. “Shadow Spell: Book Two of The Cousins O’Dwyer Trilogy” (Penguin Random House) jumped 19 spots from its previous position on the list to depose “Allegiant” (the third Divergent […] more »
