I was a bit disappointed when I read an ad piece on Advert. Of the top 10 best-selling books on Amazon in 2011, only two were “independently” published.
Here is the list of those 10 books:
“Steve Jobs” by Walter Isaacson
“Bossypants” by Tina Fey
“A Stolen Life” by Jaycee Dugard
“The Mill River Recluse” by Darcie Chan
“In the Garden of the Beasts” by Erik Larson
“A Dance with Dragons” by George R.R. Martin
“The Paris Wife” by Paula McLain
“The Litigators” by John Grisham
“The Abbey” by Chris Culver
“Inheritance (The Inheritance Cycle)” by Christopher Paolini
Of those, only “The Mill River Recluse” and “The Abbey” were indirectly published via Kindle Direct Publishing and did not have a print edition.
Do you have a favorite eBook that you thought should have been a best-seller?
