Kindle Million Club

Jeg er utrolig imponert! Listen over forfattere som har solgt over 1 million eksemplarer av egne e-bøker på Amazon Kindle store øker. De nye 2 på listen er Lee Child og Suzanne Collins. Nå er det totalt 6. Forut for disse to nye finner man også Stieg Larsson! Les bare hva The New York Times skriver i april i år:

""Girl With the Dragon Tattoo Sells More Than 1 Million Digital Copies

In what is believed to be a first for an e-book, “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo,” by the Swedish novelist Stieg Larsson, has sold more than a million copies in its digital format, Knopf said on Thursday. Knopf, part of Random House, said the combined digital sales for all three books in the blockbuster “Millennium” series, which includes “The Girl Who Played With Fire” and “The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest,” is now more than three million copies. 

The trilogy is selling at a clip of more than 500,000 copies a month in all formats. “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo,” which went on sale in the United States in September 2008, has sold more than 300,000 copies in hardcover.

No other major publisher said it had yet sold one million e-books of a single title. Several publishers said they had individual authors, like Nora Roberts of Penguin Group USA, who has sold more than a million digital copies of all her combined books.

The “Millennium” trilogy has sold nearly 17 million copies in the United States alone."" 

Det sies at årsaken til at forfattere som skriver serier selger så veldig godt er at dersom man blir hektet på en bok i en serie så tar det kun 60 sekund fra man har avsluttet den første boka til man kan starte på den neste. Via Kindle Store går det umåtelig raskt å kjøpe og laste ned. Heldigvis :-)
