USA Kindle Store Bestseller Analysis April 19 2014

I do an analysis of the bestsellers in the USA Kindle store from time to time. The last one was on November 10 2013.

Unfortunately, just as we’ve been seeing with our monthly Snapshot of the New York Times bestseller fiction hardback equivalents, the prices have gone up…a lot. The top twenty titles averaged $4.77 in November…and they average $6.48 today. That’s an increase of almost 36%!

That reverses a drop that we had seen before.

It simply can’t be ignored that some prices on e-books at Amazon are going up. It’s possible that other prices are going down even more, but that’s hard to tell easily.

When we look at the features, we again have the impact of some of these books being Kindle First books…meaning they haven’t actually been published yet. Those books are apparently not listed as part of the KOLL (Kindle Owners’ Lending Library), which makes sense. You can order them before they are published, but you can’t borrow them before.

Here’s a look at the top 50:

50 Rosetta $1.99 Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes No
Summary $5.69 47 42 16 5 23 7
Percentage 94 84 32 10 46 14

Comparing it to November, we see this:

TTS (Text-To-Speech): this is up a significant amount, being at 94% instead of 85%. My intuition is that blocking TTS is going away as a strategy

X-Ray: 84% versus 95%…that’s a big drop

Lending: 32% versus 25%

KOLL: 10% versus 10% (no change)

Whispersync For Voice: 46% versus 35%. Another significant increase. It’s funny, this would seem to me like a relatively difficult task. It has to help that Amazon owns two audiobook companies (Audible and Brilliance)

Kindle Matchbook: 14% versus 5…nearly tripled!

Kindle First is clearly working: eight of the top 50 are Amazon, versus five in November.

The  number of indies (independently published books) is up by twenty percent…from ten to twelve.

One other interesting observation: I was surprised to see books priced at one penny in the top 50. Indies can’t typically price their books below $0.99. The books could be considered seasonal, so I wonder if one of Amazon’ price algorithms got in a limbo fight (“how low can you go”) with another algorithm?

Bonus deal: the first book in the Crash Gordon series by Derek Swannson is free through April 22nd:

Review: Crash Gordon and the Mysteries of Kingsburg

As full disclosure,  I have some correspondence with Derek Swannson (we’ve never met  in person), and was privileged to offer some advice and do some proof-reading on the second book:

Crash Gordon and the Revelations from Big Sur (at AmazonSmile)

I haven’t had a chance to read the “final” version, though…but I do know I was acknowledged. :)

You can’t always tell from this blog ;) but I am a good (amateur) proof-reader. I was also pleased to see that some of my editorial advice was taken as well…I’ve done that for a few people. I think it particular that the opening structure is stronger.

Just like the first book, I will warn you that many people will see it as beyond the bounds of good taste. However, with a 4.8 average with 25 reviews, it’s also apparent that many people like it.

* I am linking to the same thing at the regular Amazon site, and at AmazonSmile. When you shop at AmazonSmile, half a percent of your purchase price on eligible items goes to a non-profit you choose. It will feel just like shopping at Amazon: you’ll be using your same account. The one thing for you that is different is that you pick a non-profit the first time you go (which you can change whenever you want)…and the good feeling you’ll get. :) Shop ’til you help! :)

Kindle New York Times bestsellers shockingly up almost $1 a month so far this year

April 1, 2014

Kindle New York Times bestsellers shockingly up almost $1 a month so far this year

This is not an April Fool’s Day joke, although some Amazon customers may wish it was.

I regularly track prices at Amazon in a monthly Snapshot. In this morning’s

Snapshot: April 1 2014

I noted the continuation of an unsettling trend.

The prices that Amazon sets for the New York Times bestseller hardback fiction equivalents have been on a steep climb this year.

That has not been the case in the past…at least, not until the Agency Model came into play in April of 2010.

Those prices stabilized around $13, and stayed that way until they began to drop again in 2013 (presumably influenced by the publishers dropping the Agency Model in a settlement with the USA Department of Justice over a conspiracy to fix prices).

They continued down, for the most part…until this year.

In the past three months, they have gone up on average $2.91…an average of ninety-seven cents per month.

That’s a remarkable change of direction.

It’s not just the average which has been rising (that could hypothetically be accounted for by a few expensive books).

The number of books in this group priced under $10 has also dropped…again, significantly.

Average: $7.94 (-$1.06) 16 titles under $10

For comparison, consumers recently got money from a settlement from a different price-fixing case against the publishers (brought by State and some territory Attorneys General).

Here are the amounts of those settlements:

Category Non-Minnesota Minnesota
NY Times Bestsellers $3.17 $3.93
Other Books $0.73 $0.94

At the current rate of increase, the prices for New York Times bestseller hardback fiction equivalents will have risen as much as the settlement amount for bestsellers (outside of Minnesota) by next month.

Overall, Amazon’s prices have not been showing equivalent increases. While there has been some decrease in the number of books priced between one penny and fifty dollars that are under $10, it certainly doesn’t match the increases in the above group:

Percentage of books priced from one penny to $50 that are under ten dollars

March, 2014 (taken April 1, 2014): 87.6% (2,054,771 of 2,346,730)
February, 2014 (taken March 1, 2014): 87.5% (2,012,504 of 2,300,490)
January, 2014 (taken February 1, 2014): 87.7% (1,976,453 of 2,254,215)
December, 2013 (taken January 1, 2014): 88.1% (1,932,395 of 2,193,346)

It’s important to note that, as shown above, close to ninety percent of the books in the one penny to fifty dollar group are still under $10. There are also many free books available from Amazon, and many under $3.

These NYT equivalents are largely going to be from tradpubs (traditional publishers), suggesting that something is happening there which isn’t happening with indies (independent publishers) going through Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing.

This may portend more of a market shift towards the indies, although the data here isn’t enough to conclude that.

New York Times Bestseller hardback fiction equivalents in the USA Kindle store:

6/1/2012 $12.94
5/1/2012 $13.04
4/1/2012 $13.14

We will keep an eye on this and other trends.

Update: Andrys Basten asked a couple of questions about this, and that helped me deepen this story.

Andrys asked:

“Who’s responsible for setting the NYT recommended pricing? Are those higher now?”

The publishers set the suggested list price on books. I used the “Wayback Machine” at

Archive.org

to pull up an earlier set of NYT fiction hardback bestsellers, to compare.

November 17, 2013

$28.95
$18.00
$30.00
$28.00
$30.00
$27.00
$27.99
$35.00
$29.99
$28.00
Average: $28.29

April 6 (that’s the date on the list that is out now), 2014

$28.00
$26.95
$27.99
$26.95
$28.99
$30.00
$27.95
$27.95
$28.00
$28.00
Average: $28.07

So, the list prices have actually dropped somewhat.

The reason why that would matter is that it would be logical for the Kindle prices to have risen if the hardback prices had also risen. That does not appear to be the case here. It also wouldn’t have to happen: Amazon used to keep “most” bestsellers at $9.99, regardless of the hardback list price.

Note that I am comparing the hardback prices in the two periods, not the suggested digital list price. It is possible that the publishers have raised the digital list price without raising the hardback list price: I have not checked that yet.

Andrys also asked:

“Is Amazon’s pricing of NYT Bestsellers the same as everyone else’s now? (B&N, Kobo et al) or is Amazon’s higher (or lower) than competing booksellers?”

Amazon generally does price matching, so I wouldn’t expect prices to be very different on highly competitive titles like these (I assume customers are less likely to report a lower price on a title with less demand, in part because fewer customers will be seeing it).

Comparing the top ten New York Times fiction hardback bestseller equivalents, I get this:

Kindle NOOK Kobo
$11.84 $11.99 $11.84
$10.99 $10.99 $10.99
$12.74 $12.74 $12.74
$10.99 $10.99 $10.99
$10.99 $11.04 $12.74
$7.50 $14.99 $7.50
$10.99 $10.99 $11.24
$11.99 $11.99 $12.99
$11.99 $14.99 $11.99
$11.47 $11.47 $11.47
$111.49 $122.18 $114.49

Looking  at these, the answer is that Amazon is lower. Kobo was somewhat higher, and Barnes & Noble was significantly higher. In fact, Amazon always had the lowest price (although it was sometimes a two-way or three-way tie).

What do you think? Does this make you more likely to buy independent books (for full disclosure, I am, in a very minor way, an independent publisher…I have published some of my own books in the Kindle store)? Is this a temporary trend? How do you feel about it? Feel free to let me and my readers know by commenting on this post.

I generally run this information through eReaderIQ.com (it’s just easier than Amazon), and there are some vagaries in the searches (both there and on Amazon). I do try to run it the same way every time, so unless Amazon changes something, it should give you a pretty good idea.  NOTE: I’ve changed this explanation from saying “Jungle-Search.com” to “eReaderIQ.com”. It’s the same people and I assume the results are the same. eReaderIQ is just for the Kindle, Jungle-Search does Amazon generally. eReaderIQ has a slightly better interface for the searches.

* There was also an enhanced audio/visual version of this book for $16.99. I chose to enter it here only in the standard version, since that most closely represents the comparison between paper and e-book versions. It isn’t necessary to pay $16.99: it’s an additional payment for more features

Summary

The shocking rise in average for New York Times bestseller hardback equivalents continues. It’s a shock, because it would have been reasonable to assume the prices would be stable or go down after the end of the Agency Model. This is enough of a trend that it may warrant a separate post. Not only did it go up fifty-nine cents this month, that makes close to an average of a dollar month rise…for the past three months! The overall prices did not see a noticeable rise, which was a relieve. On the good side, there are now more than 2.5 million titles in the USA Kindle store for the first time. We generally had more content: more magazines, more blogs, more “Spanish edition” books, more textbooks…that’s all good. The number of free books went down, and the number of Kindle Matchbook eligible titles plummeted 27%! Publishers may not be seeing that as an advantage, and so (hypothetically) may not be agreeing to terms Amazon wants.

Data were drawn using http://www.ereaderiq.com. There are a number of possible sources of errors (eRi, Amazon, me), but these are probably pretty good.  The same people now do eReaderIQ.com, and I may switch to that eventually.  However, I’m reluctant to change my methods in order to maintain consistency.

  • The free books referenced here are from the Kindle store: there are many other sources for free books
  • My search for textbooks definitely has false positives (books that aren’t really textbooks). I search for -domain (to eliminate public domain titles, which would be older books, generally) textbook. That would find a book about textbooks, for example
  • I searched for “Spanish edition” to find Spanish language books. That has some false positives as well
  • I look at price percentages of books in the range of one penny to fifty dollars, to eliminate freebies and limit textbooks
  • The price point analysis is for books at that specific price: it does not represent a range of prices
  • I compared the percentage of price points in the Price Point Analysis when I showed the difference…not the number of books
  • This information is based on what a United States customer sees

The top three books in the USA Kindle store are all…

March 9, 2014

The top three books in the USA Kindle store are all…

…in the Divergent series by Veronica Roth.

With the new movie scheduled to open March 21st in the USA, it may not be a surprise to see these doing well…but this is really well!

Perhaps they should have called the series “Ascendant”. ;)

There is no question that movies can fuel book sales…even when a movie flops, the sales of the book on which it was based may increase. After all, you have to please a lot more people to have a movie succeed than you have to please to have a book succeed. A million admissions to a movie would be a serious failure for a typical Hollywood production: a million copies/licenses of a book sold would be a huge success.

I am impressed with this, though.

It’s not just the movie…their have been some notable box office disappointments in movies based on young adult books recently (Vampire Academy, The Host, Beautiful Creatures…).

They have good reviews, although as is not uncommon with series, the first one has better reviews than the last.

The publisher has not blocked text-to-speech access on them, although I haven’t really been able to demonstrate that it helps sales all that much.

The prices are good: you could buy all three of them (as e-books) for under $20 combined, which oddly is significantly lower than buying the three of them in one volume. Well, maybe it isn’t that odd: since the Agency Model ended, there are probably price wars going on with this.

These are the three:

Divergent (at AmazonSmile: benefit a non-profit of your choice by shopping*)
$4.99 at time of writing
4.6 out of 5 stars, with a very high 10,825 customer reviews (the first Harry Potter has 8,348, for comparison’s sake)

Insurgent (at AmazonSmile)
$6.99
4.6 stars, 6,569 reviews

Allegiant (at AmazonSmile)
$6.99
3.2 stars, 8,123 reviews

Why the big drop off in ratings for that third book?

I don’t want to see spoilers, so I’ll speculate generally:

  • Some people just don’t like to see a series end. ;)
  • The author did something in that book that fans didn’t like…that happens. It’s often legitimate to the story, but not how readers (especially young adults) might have wanted it to go
  • It isn’t written as well…that seems unlikely to me in most cases where (as I would guess is the case here) the books were planned at the same time

Just thought their leadership of the USA Kindles store bestseller list was interesting…

Nominate a child to be given a free Kindle at Give a Kid a Kindle. You can also now recommend a child to be the recipient.

* I am linking to the same thing at the regular Amazon site, and at AmazonSmile. When you shop at AmazonSmile, half a percent of your purchase price on eligible items goes to a non-profit you choose. It will feel just like shopping at Amazon: you’ll be using your same account. The one thing for you that is different is that you pick a non-profit the first time you go (which you can change whenever you want)…and the good feeling you’ll get. :) Shop ’til you help! :) By the way, it’s been interesting lately to see Amazon remind me to “start at AmazonSmile” if I check a link on the original Amazon site. I do buy from AmazonSmile, but I have a lot of stored links I use to check for things.

Snapshot: March 1 2014

I generally run this information through eReaderIQ.com (it’s just easier than Amazon), and there are some vagaries in the searches (both there and on Amazon). I do try to run it the same way every time, so unless Amazon changes something, it should give you a pretty good idea.  NOTE: I’ve changed this explanation from saying “Jungle-Search.com” to “eReaderIQ.com”. It’s the same people and I assume the results are the same. eReaderIQ is just for the Kindle, Jungle-Search does Amazon generally. eReaderIQ has a slightly better interface for the searches.

* There was also an enhanced audio/visual version of this book for $16.99. I chose to enter it here only in the standard version, since that most closely represents the comparison between paper and e-book versions. It isn’t necessary to pay $16.99: it’s an additional payment for more features

Price Point Analysis

April 1, 2010 was “Agency Day”, when the pricing system for some of the largest trade publishers in the US changed. I’ve started tracking price points, to see how that is affecting things. These are not ranges: it’s how many books are at a specific price point.

Summary

In a noticeable trend, prices are up. That’s true as I look across the various measures I make. There are fewer books in the one penny to $50 range that are under $10. New York Times bestseller hardback fiction equivalents are perhaps the most disturbing, with prices up more than a dollar, and the majority of the books are over $9.99, which wasn’t true last month. On the other hand, there are more free books, both to own and to borrow (through the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library). Still, while last month’s analysis was a bit troublesome, this one is more solidly in the negative. I’ll keep an eye on the developments.

Data were drawn using http://www.ereaderiq.com. There are a number of possible sources of errors (eRi, Amazon, me), but these are probably pretty good.  The same people now do eReaderIQ.com, and I may switch to that eventually.  However, I’m reluctant to change my methods in order to maintain consistency.

  • The free books referenced here are from the Kindle store: there are many other sources for free books
  • My search for textbooks definitely has false positives (books that aren’t really textbooks). I search for -domain (to eliminate public domain titles, which would be older books, generally) textbook. That would find a book about textbooks, for example
  • I searched for “Spanish edition” to find Spanish language books. That has some false positives as well
  • I look at price percentages of books in the range of one penny to fifty dollars, to eliminate freebies and limit textbooks
  • The price point analysis is for books at that specific price: it does not represent a range of prices
  • I compared the percentage of price points in the Price Point Analysis when I showed the difference…not the number of books
  • This information is based on what a United States customer sees

After the Agency Model, is there price competition again?

February 28, 2014

After the Agency Model, is there price competition again?

When the Agency Model came into being in the USA in April of 2010, publishers using it set the prices on e-books (rather than the retailers selling you the books). That basically meant that there was no price competition: the price would be the same wherever you bought it.

The US DoJ (Department of Justice) then went after those publishers…and they all settled, eventually ending the Agency Model.

A comment by reader Jamie Bothen got me wondering…are the prices different now at Barnes & Noble and Amazon?

I first checked some New York Times bestsellers:

  • Amazon $5.99: B&N $5.49
  • Amazon $5.49: B&N $6.15
  • Amazon $5.99: B&N $5.99
  • Amazon $8.52: B&N $10.99
  • Amazon $11.47: B&N $11.47
  • Amazon $10.65: B&N $10.99
  • Amazon $11.89: B&N $16.99
  • Amazon $5.99: B&N $7.99
  • Amazon $6.83: B&N $7.99
  • Amazon $10.65: B&N $10.99

Well, that answers the question in the affirmative!

Out of these ten books, only two were at the same price at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

Only one of them was cheaper at B&N, and that was by fifty cents. Amazon does do price matching, so if people report the difference (there’s a link to do that on the book’s Amazon product page), the price would be likely to go down.

Interestingly, you could save up to $5.10 on a single book at Amazon!

Looking at the difference if you bought all ten (I went by the default order at Amazon…which happened to be by publication date), you would save $11.57…which could certainly get you another book.

I would actually expect the prices to be more similar on bestsellers than on “long tail” (older) titles…I would think competition would tend to keep them similar, since people are more likely to be comparing prices and shopping around.

So, I thought I’d try the

Science Fiction Classics (at AmazonSmile: benefit a non-profit of your choice by shopping*)

  • Amazon $3.99: B&N $3.99
  • Amazon $5.74: B&N $9.49
  • Amazon $4.95: B&N $5.99
  • Amazon $7.50: B&N $10.19
  • Amazon $8.04: B&N $9.99
  • Amazon $5.74: B&N $7.99
  • Amazon $10.74: B&N $12.99
  • Amazon $5.99: B&N $7.99
  • Amazon $5.99: B&N $7.99
  • Amazon $7.69: B&N $9.99

As I guessed: prices were significantly lower at Amazon on the backlist: the savings was $20.23, close to twice as much.

There’s the answer: prices are different at this point, and Amazon tends to be cheaper (but they are sometimes the same, and rarely, B&N is cheaper…but not by as much as Amazon tends to be cheaper on the average).

* I am linking to the same thing at the regular Amazon site, and at AmazonSmile. When you shop at AmazonSmile, half a percent of your purchase price on eligible items goes to a non-profit you choose. It will feel just like shopping at Amazon: you’ll be using your same account. The one thing for you that is different is that you pick a non-profit the first time you go (which you can change whenever you want)…and the good feeling you’ll get. :) Shop ’til you help! :) By the way, it’s been interesting lately to see Amazon remind me to “start at AmazonSmile” if I check a link on the original Amazon site. I do buy from AmazonSmile, but I have a lot of stored links I use to check for things.

Snapshot: February 1 2014

I generally run this information through eReaderIQ.com (it’s just easier than Amazon), and there are some vagaries in the searches (both there and on Amazon). I do try to run it the same way every time, so unless Amazon changes something, it should give you a pretty good idea.  NOTE: I’ve changed this explanation from saying “Jungle-Search.com” to “eReaderIQ.com”. It’s the same people and I assume the results are the same. eReaderIQ is just for the Kindle, Jungle-Search does Amazon generally. eReaderIQ has a slightly better interface for the searches.

* There was also an enhanced audio/visual version of this book for $16.99. I chose to enter it here only in the standard version, since that most closely represents the comparison between paper and e-book versions. It isn’t necessary to pay $16.99: it’s an additional payment for more features

Summary

Hm. I typically get to write overwhelmingly positive things here, but I’d say that’s not as much the case this time. In particular, New York Times hardback fiction equivalents jumped in price…a lot, nearly a dollar.  That’s significant, but perhaps more significant is that nine of them (nearly half) are over $9.99, compared to three last time. Also, the percentage of books in the one penny to $50 price range that were under $10 dropped…considerably. These may be indicative of price raises generally. Note that this is not due to a seasonal price hike following December: in previous years, that has not been regularly the case. On the other hand, there are more free books, and more books to borrow from the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library (KOLL). Content additions did seem to slow down some, with the exception of blogs and magazines.Data were drawn using http://www.ereaderiq.com. There are a number of possible sources of errors (eRi, Amazon, me), but these are probably pretty good.  The same people now do eReaderIQ.com, and I may switch to that eventually.  However, I’m reluctant to change my methods in order to maintain consistency.

  • The free books referenced here are from the Kindle store: there are many other sources for free books
  • My search for textbooks definitely has false positives (books that aren’t really textbooks). I search for -domain (to eliminate public domain titles, which would be older books, generally) textbook. That would find a book about textbooks, for example
  • I searched for “Spanish edition” to find Spanish language books. That has some false positives as well
  • I look at price percentages of books in the range of one penny to fifty dollars, to eliminate freebies and limit textbooks
  • The price point analysis is for books at that specific price: it does not represent a range of prices
  • I compared the percentage of price points in the Price Point Analysis when I showed the difference…not the number of books
  • This information is based on what a United States customer sees

Non-English books in the USA Kindle store

January 29, 2014

Non-English books in the USA Kindle store

Amazon has more sites than just Amazon.com:

  • Australia
  • Brazil
  • Canada
  • China
  • France
  • Germany
  • India
  • Italy
  • Japan
  • Mexico
  • Spain
  • United Kingdom

However, you can’t just buy e-books from those other sites if you want to do that.

A lot of people complain about that in the Amazon Kindle forums, but there is a good reason behind it (at least, with laws set up the way they are now).

Authors traditionally license the rights to sell their books to publishers. They normally license them by format (someone who licenses the rights for the hardback doesn’t automatically get the e-book rights or the audiobook rights) and by territory. The latter might be an individual country, but it could be a lot more than that (all of Africa, perhaps)…just depends on what is worked out.

If the publisher who licensed the right to sell a book in France sells it to somebody in the USA, they could be in serious trouble. That’s particularly true if a different publisher licensed the USA.

A lot of people counter that with the ability to buy paperbooks from other Amazon sites, but that’s quite different. With a paperbook, the store buys it from the publisher first, then sells it to the customer. If the store is able to export it, that’s fine…that’s not where the publisher sold it.

With an e-book, the sale doesn’t happen until the customer buys it…the store didn’t buy it first. The sale is basically considered to have taken place where the customer is (although it’s a tad trickier than that).

So, while the German site has over two and a half million books (many of which, I am guessing, are in German), that doesn’t mean all those same books are available to customers using Amazon.com.

I checked the state of foreign language books at Amazon.com back in November of 2009.

Kindle spoken here

These were some figures I got then:

I got those results by searching for the language followed by the word “Edition”. For example, I would have searched for “French Edition”.

Amazon has since expanded the way it lists foreign language books. This is what it says now:

  • Spanish (80,230)
  • German (142,958)
  • French (40,986)
  • Italian (31,324)
  • Japanese (17,538)
  • Portuguese (19,382)
  • Chinese (2,895)
  • Afrikaans (1,716)
  • Russian (260)
  • Other Languages (5,722)

Now, just to give a more consistent comparison, I’ll search for “German Edition”. Doing it that way, I got 143,043…not that far off, and it might have some false positives.

So, honestly, we can say that the numbers have exploded! There are about seventy-five times as many German books, just to stick with one language!

If we compare that to the overall growth rate of the USA Kindle store, this is much, much higher. I recorded the titles in store count on December 1, 2009 as 385,484. On January 1 of 2014, I recorded 2,351,290. While that is a lot of growth (there are about six times as many books…more than doubling every year), it’s not even a tenth the rate of German book growth.

My search for “Swahili Edition” gives me 104 versus 5…more than twenty times as many.

I think that the number of books where companies get global licenses has also greatly increased, and that may have something to do with it. It costs the company more initially, or at least I would assume that’s the case, but can certainly be worth it.

98% of the top 100 bestselling Kindle books are under $10

January 5, 2014

98% of the top 100 bestselling Kindle books are under $10

This is really amazing, when you look at it!

I was looking at the

Top 100 USA Kindle store paid
at AmazonSmile: benefit a non-profit of your choice by shopping*

Those are the bestselling e-books which aren’t free.

What struck me right off is that the prices are low…even though there are traditionally published books in this group.

The most expensive book in the top twenty is only $7.50. That’s a group that includes a John Grisham, a Tom Clancy, and a Stephanie Plum (by Janet Evanovich).

Here’s a quick run down of those top 20:

  1. $4.99
  2. $3.99
  3. $4.99
  4. $6.99
  5. $4.99
  6. $6.99
  7. $6.99
  8. $7.50
  9. $6.49
  10. $4.99
  11. $5.99
  12. $4.99
  13. $3.99
  14. $1.99
  15. $6.99
  16. $6.49
  17. $3.99
  18. $6.06
  19. $2.99
  20. $3.99

The average? $5.32.

That’s extraordinary…if we looked at bestsellers in p-book (paperbook), before the advent of e-books, that would be remarkably low…even without adjusting for inflation.

You might be thinking, “Well, mass market paperbacks were lower priced than that.”

Sure, but most of these brand name ones aren’t in paperback at this point…and mass market paperbacks aren’t as cheap as they were decades ago.

Let’s say you wanted to buy paper…what would they cost from Amazon?

  • The Janet Evanovich? $14.00
  • The Tom Clancy? $16.90
  • The John Grisham? $9.99…as a mass market paperback!

It’s getting to be pretty simple…a paperbook is becoming a luxury item (as it was in the past).

If you just buy ten of these books, you could easily save enough money with e-books over p-books to buy a Kindle.

Of course, you don’t even need a Kindle to read Kindle books…you can use a free Kindle reader app (and many of my readers do that).

Yes, I think bookstores will stick around, and yes, I think people will continue to buy p-books.

However, when we are looking at unit sales (not gross), even with a slowing of e-book growth last year, I think we are looking at e-books really being the mainstream in the very near future…with p-books being the niche product.

What do you think? Will bookstores selling paperbooks survive the next few years? Will p-book prices go up (as I think they are likely to do)? Is the feel of a physical object so strong that it will continue to keep p-books on top? Have e-book sales plateaued? Will e-book prices rise when p-books lose marketshare? Feel free to tell me and my readers what you think by commenting on this post.

Enjoy the low prices! ;)

Snapshot: January 1 2014

I generally run this information through eReaderIQ.com (it’s just easier than Amazon), and there are some vagaries in the searches (both there and on Amazon). I do try to run it the same way every time, so unless Amazon changes something, it should give you a pretty good idea.  NOTE: I’ve changed this explanation from saying “Jungle-Search.com” to “eReaderIQ.com”. It’s the same people and I assume the results are the same. eReaderIQ is just for the Kindle, Jungle-Search does Amazon generally. eReaderIQ has a slightly better interface for the searches.

* There was also an enhanced audio/visual version of this book for $16.99. I chose to enter it here only in the standard version, since that most closely represents the comparison between paper and e-book versions. It isn’t necessary to pay $16.99: it’s an additional payment for more features

Summary

The best news is the way the New York Times bestselling fiction hardback equivalents dropped in price again…more than a dollar! Only two titles were over $9.99. The other news is also generally good, with more content and low prices. There are fewer newspapers. There are also fewer free books…but there are more in the KOLL (Kindle Owners’ Lending Library). That’s not a one for one comparison: you don’t own a book you borrow from the KOLL, and you have to be an eligible Prime member with a hardware Kindle to use the KOLL. Still, overall…looking good. :)

Data were drawn using http://www.ereaderiq.com. There are a number of possible sources of errors (eRi, Amazon, me), but these are probably pretty good.  The same people now do eReaderIQ.com, and I may switch to that eventually.  However, I’m reluctant to change my methods in order to maintain consistency.

  • The free books referenced here are from the Kindle store: there are many other sources for free books
  • My search for textbooks definitely has false positives (books that aren’t really textbooks). I search for -domain (to eliminate public domain titles, which would be older books, generall) textbook. That would find a bookabout textbooks, for example
  • I searched for “Spanish edition” to find Spanish language books. That has some false positives as well
  • I look at price percentages of books in the range of one penny to fifty dollars, to eliminate freebies and limit textbooks
  • The price point analysis is for books at that specific price: it does not represent a range of prices
  • I compared the percentage of price points in the Price Point Analysis when I showed the difference…not the number of books
  • This information is based on what a United States customer sees
