WSJ Debuts its E-Book Bestseller List

The Wall Street Journal ran its first bestseller list for e-books over the weekend, with data provided by Nielsen BookScan. It’s pretty much identical to all the other bestseller lists, which means its non-fiction list is also topped by Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard’s Killing Lincoln and its list includes self-published authors. The Times and USA Today already published e-book bestsellers.

The new list has already allowed the WSJ to reference itself as a source of data in articles. Today, in an article about self-publishing, we learn that “Self-published women’s fiction writer Darcie Chan has seen her new work, The Mill River Recluse, hit No. 5 on The Wall Street Journal‘s list of digital fiction bestsellers for the week ended Oct. 23.”
