E-BOOK BESTSELLER LISTS SCHEDULED BY THE NYT
According to the announcement, it will "publish e-book best-seller lists in fiction and nonfiction beginning early next year." Spokesperson Diane McNulty elaborated, on questioning, that they they will run dedicated ebook bestseller lists rather than incorporate ebook sales into any of the existing lists.
Additional details, including the number of positions on the official lists and the possibility of showing "extended" lists online, will be announced "closer to launch."
One hopes they will not make the "Amazon" mistake, and include free eBooks in their sampling.
