Starting Exactly Now, the "Out of Print" Book is Extinct
Last week, the NYTimes finally aligned itself with reality and made a major shift in the way it reports books sales. The new, improved bestsellers list is a combo of ebook sales and print sales, and now there is also a list for ebook sales only. Both of these lists are weekly, and both cover fiction and nonfiction separately.
Welcome to a new world, everyone.
Of particular fun is comparing the print/ebook combo list against the ebook-only list. Notice a trend? The ebook-only list is strong in backlisted books, as I predicted here. As of exactly now, the days of a book being “out of print” are gone forever. Interesting new world, and good for the pocketbook of writers.
