Snapshot:February 1, 2016

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 one thing that really stood out to me this time was that two of the New York Times bestseller hardback fiction equivalents were not available in Kindle editions. That hasn’t happened in years. I’ll have to research that, see if there might be some kind of dispute happening. Outside of that, things were pretty much as to be expected: slight variations in available books in different categories, with about 85% of the books priced from one penny to $50 under $10. I think that gets lost sometimes…

Older data were drawn using http://www.jungle-search.com, newer data with http://www.ereaderiq.com (from the same people). There are a number of possible sources of errors (eRi, Amazon, me), but these are probably pretty good.

  • 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

“Where is your old release section?”

January 20, 2016

“Where is your old release section?”

For many decades, there has been a basic assumption in retail: “new” matters.

It’s been considered one of the most powerful words you can pick in an ad…or on a package. You’ll see it underlined, in bigger font, with an exclamation point.

When I managed a brick-and-mortar bookstore, no question: we promoted new titles.

We put them in the window.

We had “wishing wells” (those carefully arranged essentially circular stacks of one titles with a hole in the middle) of new titles.

Publishers set higher suggested retail prices (“list prices”) for new titles, and even with discounting, you would expect to pay more for a new Stephen King than for one that was ten years old.

I’ve seen people really upset when a thirty year old book was set at, say, $9.99 as an e-book on Amazon.

Certainly, there were some reasonable factors involved.

One was the desire to read something you hadn’t read before. You might have read every Stephen King book published so far…that gives you a higher desire for a new book, and more demand can equal higher prices.

Another one was wanting to avoid spoilers. People were in line at midnight to read the new Harry Potter (or a century earlier, they wanted to be the first to get the new Oz book) in part so they could read it before they heard about some essential plot point.

All of this has meant that a list like the New York Times bestseller list would reliably almost always be comprised of new titles.

What I’ve noticed, though, is that may not still be the case…at least for e-books, and especially for one way of getting them.

As a hypothesis, that make some sense to me.

The USA Kindle store averages more than a 1,000 books added a day. You can’t possibly have read everything out there…so you aren’t caught up. You can no longer read all of the new books in a topic you like…almost regardless of topic.

Similarly, for spoilers, they are just less likely to happen…with this many books available, the plot points of any given novel are less likely to be discussed.

The rise of the indie (independently published) book is yet another point. Tradpubs (traditionally published) books are a tiny minority of the books being published today, but they still dominate the p-books (paperbooks). The paperbook sales are what people see on bestseller lists (at least that’s what most people notice)…and those tend to be the new releases from the tradpubs, just as they have been for a very long time

How important is newness for the USA Kindle bookstore bestsellers? How does it compare to p-book bestsellers in the USA Amazon store?

The place where it really stood out to me (prior to analysis) was in

Kindle Unlimited (at AmazonSmile: benefit a non-profit of your choice by shopping*)

I was looking for a KU book for my Significant Other in a hurry, so I went to the KU storefront…and noticed that the top books were older.

As is my tendency, I didn’t want to just go with my “feel” for it…I decided to do an analysis to see how “newness” might vary between the USA Kindle store, p-books at Amazon.com, and KU.

Before I actually do this analysis for you, I’m sure one factor might mess it up…the dominance of

Kindle First books (at AmazonSmile*)

on the bestseller list.

I’ve asked Amazon if the free books in Kindle First available to Prime members affects their bestseller rankings…I haven’t gotten an answer yet, so I think I may run it with and without them.

Okay, let’s take a look.

I’m only going to look at paid bestsellers, not free ones.

I think I’ll go with the publication date given on the Amazon product page. That will not correlate to the original publication date, but I think makes some sense. When an older book is first published in Kindle format, I think it’s often treated by readers as though it was a new book…even if it was first published in paper half a century or more ago.

Interesting!

I knew there would be some older books on the New York Times bestseller list, because books can stay on that list for some time.

KU books were somewhat older, but not as much as I had anticipated. I suspect that what I saw before was “featured” titles (which featured Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings) rather than “most popular”.

The overall Amazon bestsellers were older than I would have guessed…there were a couple of particularly older ones which pushed those back…and they weren’t popular fiction or non-fiction. I hadn’t counted on that.

I do think backlist (older books), indies, and even public domain will tend to claim more of the market over the next ten years or so, and that subsers (subscription services) may also influence that.

What do you think? What’s your intuitive sense of your own reading? Do you place a higher or lower premium on buying a book to read, or is it about the same? Have you found yourself reading more indies and public domain? This may also have an impact: are you now more likely to buy a book and then read it later (perhaps much later) than when you bought primarily p-books? I do think that has been true for me…I might buy a book on sale (although I tend now to go with KU and books given to me as gifts), and then it would be in the TBR (To Be Read) “pile” for some time. Feel free to tell me and my readers what you think by commenting on this post.

None of the top 10 bestselling USA Kindle store books are from the Big 5

January 6, 2016

None of the top 20 bestselling USA Kindle store books are from the Big 5

In my The Year in E-Books 2015, and other places, I’ve noted that Amazon is putting a lot of effort into having less dependence on the Big 5 tradpubs (traditional publishers): Hachette; Macmillan; Simon & Schuster; HarperCollins; and Penguin Random House.

Well, at least in the USA Kindle store, they appear to be achieving it.

I just checked the

Top 100 Paid (at AmazonSmile: benefit a non-profit of your choice by shopping*)

and none of the top 10 were from the Big 5!

Here’s the detail on the top ten:

Rank Title Price Publisher K1st? KU? TTS? X-Ray? Word Wise? Lending? WSV Stars Reviews
1 The Moonlit Garden $5.99 Amazon Yes Not Yet Yes Yes Yes No No 4.2 26
2 Fields of Wrath $5.99 Amazon Yes Not Yet Yes Yes Yes No No 4.7 18
3 Harmony Black $5.99 Amazon Yes Not Yet Yes No Yes No No 4.7 47
4 Yours Completely $0.99 Indie No Yes Yes No Yes No No 4.6 136
5 The Short Drop $5.99 Amazon No Yes Yes Yes No No No 4.7 2,605
6 Becoming Marta $5.99 Amazon Yes Not Yet Yes Yes No No No 3.6 18
7 A Shade of Vampire $0.99 Indie Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes No 4.3 5,225
8 Simply Tuesday $8.19 Revell No No Yes No No Yes No 4.9 258
9 Captain Riley $5.99 Amazon Yes Not Yet Yes Yes Yes No No 4.4 10
10 The Girl with No Past $2.99 Indie No No Yes Yes Yes Yes No 3.9 434

#12 is from Penguin Random House…but it’s also worth noting that it is priced at $1.99.

In fact, I didn’t hit a book that was over $9.99 until #21 (The Girl on the Train).

So many of these books were in

Kindle Unlimited (at AmazonSmile: benefit a non-profit of your choice by shopping*)

or will be (the Kindle 1st books, published by Amazon, can’t be in KU until they are published on February 1st), that I thought they had to be counting borrows in calculating this.

Why?

My guess is that being in KU might reduce sales…would you be just as likely to buy a buy a book that you can borrow as one that you can’t?

However, it could conceivably go the other way: people read or sample a book as part of KU, and then buy it for themselves or someone else.

I’m not seeing anything that indicates that KU is part of calculating sales…although I’m not seeing anything that clearly excludes it.

Text-to-speech is available on all of the books (yay!), but oddly, I didn’t see that any of them were Whispersync for Voice enabled, and that’s usually quite high. Maybe they’ve just changed the display of that information, and I’m not seeing it.

Pretty simply, based on the top sellers, Amazon really doesn’t need the Big 5…at least for Kindle formats. That’s a very small sample, though.

I serendipitously bumped into two things while writing this post.

One was this

Kindle Sales Rank calculator at Kindlepreneur

Supposedly, you put in the sales rank number, and it tells you about how many books (really licenses) a day are being sold.

I don’t know how accurate it is, but it was intriguing.

I’m surprised I didn’t know that site. I’ll have to read through it, but it looks interesting. The first blog post looks like it was in February of last year.

It appears to be centered around how authors can make more money through Kindle editions…and looks professionally designed, with actual numbers for some stats. I’ll give you a fuller report when I’ve had time to assess it.

The second thing was

Kindle Unlimited All-Stars (at AmazonSmile*)

According to Amazon, this is based on “…adding up the number of books sold, borrows from the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library, and the number of books read in Kindle Unlimited.”

It’s even searchable here:

Kindle Unlimited All-Stars by Featured (at AmazonSmile*)

ILMK has the

ILMK Readers’ Recommendations: book discovery zone

but more resources are good. :)

I used my personal Kindle Unlimited wish list to pick a book this morning…I’m reading The Man Who Fell to Earth by Walter Tevis (inspiration for the David Bowie movie).

I think KU is going to be of increasing importance, and the Big 5 are doing to need to figure out what to do about that: either join it or really ramp up D2C (Direct to Customer) efforts…

There could be a seasonal impact here: people might have bought tradpubs more during the holiday season and when they were spending gift certificates. The beginning of the month probably also benefits Kindle 1st books.

Regardless, my feeling is this is making the selections more customer-friendly…

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 good news is that I’ve been tracking this for years now, and books have never been added more quickly. Prices are also looking good overall. The bad news is that the average price for New York Times bestseller fiction hardbback equivalents have never been tracked higher by ILMK, although it has been close. I think we may be seeing a shifting in “inventory”, with relatively fewer of the relatively higher priced tradpubbed (traditionally published) books. Those tradpubbed books dominate the bestseller list for hardbacks. I’ve been writing recently about how Amazon is trying to reduce its dependence on the Big 5 USA trade publishers…these numbers suggest that may be happening.

Older data were drawn using http://www.jungle-search.com, newer data with http://www.ereaderiq.com (from the same people). There are a number of possible sources of errors (eRi, Amazon, me), but these are probably pretty good.

  • 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

Should Amazon stop making high end devices?

December 18, 2015

Should Amazon stop making high end devices?

This is a time of year when people are typically more willing to buy luxury items…to give a gifts.

In addition to managing a brick-and-mortar bookstore, I managed a game store. We carried $500 chess sets…and we figured we were very unlikely to sell one, except during the holidays at the end of the year.

Based on that, it would be reasonable to expect that Amazon’s top of the line EBR (E-Book Reader), the

Kindle Voyage (at AmazonSmile: benefit a non-profit of your choice by shopping*)

would be doing relatively well right now.

To be clear, it doesn’t mean that it should be the bestselling Kindle EBR. If Amazon’s profit on the Voyage is twice what it is on the least expensive

Kindle, 6″ Glare-Free Touchscreen Display, Wi-Fi – Includes Special Offers (at AmazonSmile: benefit a non-profit of your choice by shopping*)

and it sells half as many, they are equal.

Note that the Voyage costs more than twice as much the least expensive Kindle…but there are also certain costs which will be constant between the two (they both have delivery expenses, customer service expenses, that sort of thing).

I decided to take a look at the

Amazon Electronics Bestsellers (at AmazonSmile*)

to see what was selling best.

I was also curious about other Amazon devices.

When Amazon got into the device business in 2007, it was with a Kindle EBR. Many people thought (and said) that Amazon shouldn’t get into hardware…that it wasn’t their area of expertise.

They said the same thing when Amazon was expanding into tablets.

When they released the Fire Phone…well, okay, that one wasn’t a success. ;) I do use one every day as my SmartPhone, though.

With the

Amazon Echo (at AmazonSmile: benefit a non-profit of your choice by shopping*)

tech writers had learned more caution, I think…they didn’t simply reject its market possibilities because it was from Amazon.

Here are some of the rankings for Amazon devices right now (and it can change every hour):

#1 Fire TV Stick (the least expensive Amazon TV option)

#2 Fire 7″ tablet (the least expensive Amazon tablet option)

#3 The Kindle Paperwhite (interestingly, this is the middle priced option) with Special Offers

#4 Fire 7 tablet without Special Offers (ad-supported devices, which are less expensive to purchase in exchange for viewing ads, are generally more popular than their full-priced, ad-free counterparts)

#5 Amazon Echo

#7 Fire 6″ HD tablet with Special Offers

#8 The least expensive Kindle with Special Offers

#9 Kids Fire Edition

#10 Fire TV Stick with Voice Remote

#13 Fire 8″ HD with Special Offers

#14 Another Kids Fire Edition

#15 Fire 10″ with Special Offers (the most expensive Fire tablet model)

#16 Amazon Fire TV

I’m going to skip a lot of other configurations of these devices, to get down to the Kindle Voyage at…#79.

That does show it trending upward to get to 79, by the way.

My guess on what this means?

People don’t think of Amazon as a luxury brand. When an Amazon device is relatively expensive, compared to competitors, it just doesn’t do as well.

That would include the Kindle Voyage and (when it was introduced), the Fire Phone.

Does that mean Amazon should just give up on high end devices?

I don’t think so.

While there are considerable costs involved (development, manufacture, marketing, support), there are probably public image benefits which aren’t directly reflected in the sales.

Also, having an expensive model like the Voyage will increase the sales of the middle model, in this case, the Paperwhite. People can justify buying the middle model rather than the lowest price model because off the money they “saved” compared to buying the most expensive model.

I don’t think there is an imminent danger that Amazon will discontinue the Voyage the way they did the Fire Phone…although, unlike diamonds, device models aren’t forever. ;)

What do you think? Surprised the Echo its doing so well? Did you think the Voyage would be doing better? Feel free to tell me and my readers what you think by commenting on this post.

I do buy from AmazonSmile, but I have a lot of stored links I use to check for things.

ILMK 2015 e-book bestsellers

December 15, 2015

ILMK 2015 e-book bestsellers

Are readers of this blog, ILMK (I Love My Kindle), like Amazon customers generally?

After all, I do poll you from time to time…there are probably people who extrapolate from that to Amazon customers, and even from that to the population at large.

I don’t think so.

My sense has been that my readers are more likely to be serious readers…that is, I think they are more likely to have reading as a big part of their lives than the average American.

I also think they are more engaged with the e-book world. I think they are more likely to be aware of the issues, and to know who the authors are…and who the publishers are.

Certainly, there may be a loop here: it may be that people who are my readers also become more engaged with the e-book world because they are reading more about it…and actively intellectually interact with it, through polls and comments.

However, I do think that they initially get involved with the blog because of a heightened interest.

So, I decided to go ahead and do something I’ve been reluctant to do before: give you a list of the Kindle e-book bestsellers through ILMK this year.

I haven’t wanted to it because…well, I don’t like to make this blog about sales.

Oh, I’m happy to help out lesser known authors. It gives me a kick to feel like I made a difference in the success of somebody’s book, even though I think my influence is actually pretty small.

The other thing is that I don’t want people to think I’m looking at what they buy…or click on…or read. I don’t see anything tied into individuals at all. I just get aggregate stats…that so many people did “x”, not who they are.

That said, let’s take a look at Kindle e-book sales from Amazon.com through ILMK for 2015 (through December 14th…there will be more sales between now and the end of the year, especially after people get new devices, but this should give us an idea).

I can’t really give you the specific numbers (you may have noticed that Amazon doesn’t do that) ;) so what I’m going to do is make the one that has sold the most as 100%, then rank the others based against that. In other words, if the top seller sold 1,000 copies (really licenses), and the second one sold 750, the second one would show as 75%. If the third one sold 250, it would be 25%, and so on.

1.Tricky Twenty-Two: A Stephanie Plum Novel (at AmazonSmile: benefit a non-profit of your choice by shopping*) by Janet Evanovich. This one went on a big pre-order pre-sale of $2.99…we bought it for that, I’m guessing others of my readers did too, when I alerted them. I love being able to save people money or something that they would have bought anyway! I’ve read this one. #46 on Amazon’s Best Sellers of 2015 in Kindle Books (at AmazonSmile*) at time of writing.  100%

2.One Murder More (at AmazonSmile: benefit a non-profit of your choice by shopping*) by Kris Calvin. This is by my sibling, and I have mentioned it several times. :) While it has been recognized by Amazon (by being one of the few books picked for its first physical store, for example), and has been well received by Amazon customers (63 customer reviews, 4.7 stars out of 5), it has undoubtedly sold relatively better through this blog than at Amazon generally. It’s currently ranked 579,404 aid in the USA Kindle store out of 4,109,509…top 15%, which is quite impressive for a first time novelist from a non-Big 5 publisher! Not on Amazon’s 100 bestsellers list. 78%

3. (tie) Churchill: A Life (at AmazonSmile*) by Martin Gilbert. This one had also been on sale…but I do think it shows something that a non-fiction book from 1967 was a top-seller with my readers this year. I have not read this. Not on Amazon’s bestsellers list. 44%

3. (tie) Go Set a Watchman (at AmazonSmile: benefit a non-profit of your choice by shopping*) by Harper Lee. One of the most talked about books of the year. I read this one. #6 on Amazon’s list.  44%

3. (tie) The Martian (at AmazonSmile*) by Andy Weir. My readers picked this as a read for me in my first poll like that, and I did enjoy it. It had what should end up as a top ten domestic grossing movie adaptation (2015 Movie Box Office: 40, 80, 1, 2 , 3) which is likely to get significant Oscar nominations. It was originally independently published. #4 on Amazon’s list. 44%

3. (tie) The Nightingale (at AmazonSmile*) by Kristin Hannah. I have not read this one. #5 on Amazon’s list. 44%

3. (tie) The Shell Seekers (at AmazonSmile*) by Rosamunde Pilcher. I have not read this. Not on Amazon’s list. 44%

3. (tie) Whole: Rethinking the Science of Nutrition (at AmazonSmile*) by T. Colin Campbell. I haven’t read it. Not on Amazon’s top 100. 44%

As you can see, not a lot of overlap with Amazon’s list (although there is some). My intuitive sense here is that sales on traditionally published books significantly drove the rankings.

When we go down to the next tier (33%), I would say there are more books that are less well-known:

  • 10% Happier: How I Tamed the Voice in My Head, Reduced Stress Without Losing My Edge, and Found Self-Help That Actually Works–A True Story
  • Bearing the Cross: Martin Luther King, Jr., and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference
  • Homicidal Psycho Jungle Cat: A Calvin and Hobbes Collection (Calvin and Hobbes series Book 9)
  • Indigo Slam: An Elvis Cole Novel
  • Maude
  • Spinster’s Gambit
  • The Art of Racing in the Rain
  • The Days Are Just Packed (Calvin and Hobbes series Book 8)
  • The Einstein Prophecy
  • The Girl on the Train
  • The Miracle of Mindfulness: An Introduction to the Practice of Meditation
  • The Monopolists: Obsession, Fury, and the Scandal Behind the World’s Favorite Board Game

There you go! I’d say it does show that ILMK readers are different from the general Amazon population of Amazon’s customers. :)

I’m very interested in any feedback you might have on this post, since it is something new, and I sort of feel like I’ve crossed a line. Do you like seeing what my readers as a group bought through the blog? Did it surprise you that I can see that data? Does it bother you? What do you think about the actual titles, and how they compare to Amazon’s list? Feel free to tell me and my readers what you think by commenting on this post.

Bonus deal: today’s

Kindle Daily Deal(s) (at AmazonSmile: benefit a non-profit of your choice by shopping*)

is more than thirty (!) of the bestselling 87th Precinct books by Ed McBain, including Cop Hater (the first book in the series) for $1.99 each. This major backlist series is now published by Amazon (in e-book form). These would make a good gift…and they make a good argument for  Kindle Unlimited (at AmazonSmile: benefit a non-profit of your choice by shopping*) (which can also be given as a gift), since they are available through that service at no additional cost.

Snapshot: December 1 2015

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 standout is a leap upwards in free non-public domain books…more than 50% increase with well over 10,,000 more free books! Speaking of more more books, the USA Kindle store broke four million titles for the first of these Snapshots. Otherwise, the trends were generally good.

Older data were drawn using http://www.jungle-search.com, newer data with http://www.ereaderiq.com (from the same people). There are a number of possible sources of errors (eRi, Amazon, me), but these are probably pretty good.

  • 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

Beloved books before they hit the big screen

November 20, 2015

Beloved books before they hit the big screen

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 is opening in the USA today.

It’s the fourth and last movie (at least in this “booting”) of the series based on

The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins (at AmazonSmile: benefit a non-profit of your choice by shopping*)

It’s going to do very big business…and that’s not something that always happens with movies based on books.

However, it is in an interesting category.

The books were bestsellers before there was a movie.

It’s reasonable to say that they didn’t need the movies, although they certainly have helped the books sales. More than six years after the first book’s release, it is still #114 paid in the USA Kindle store.  The third book (the inspiration for this movie…and the last movie) is #104. That likely demonstrates that the movie is lifting its sales…it has significantly fewer customer reviews than the first book, but has a higher sales rank right now.

All three books, by the way, are available to read at no additional cost for members of Amazon’s subser (subscription service)

Kindle Unlimited (at AmazonSmile: benefit a non-profit of your choice by shopping*)

Yes, it’s true that more of the biggest box office blockbusters of the current era are based on comic books, rather than traditional literature, but some of the biggest and most culturally impactive movies have been based on bestselling books.

If we look at the

All Time USA Box Office Champs adjusted for inflation at BoxOfficeMojo

the #1 movie was based on a one of the bestselling books ever…estimated to be more than 30 million copies (and released at a time when the USA population was much lower than it is now).

The excitement about the adaptation was stoked by a highly publicized search for the lead.

People still make references to it…quoting (and misquoting) one of its lines, in particular.

Do you know what it is?

Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell (at AmazonSmile*)

If you think that going back to 1936 was a long time, we can go back to 1900 for another book release. :)

This one may have really created what we call “fandom” for books. There were clubs dedicated to it across the country. People waited in line at bookstores as each new book in the series was released.

The author tried to end the series, but public demand was too high. Despite having tried pioneering crossovers with other series, nothing else approached the long-lasting success of the…Wizard of Oz series. Now, it’s worth noting that the 1939 Judy Garland version was not the first movie version, and one of the most famous elements of that movie came from a stage show.

In fact, when we look at the

Wikipedia list of bestselling books

every one of the 100 million copy or more sellers has had at least one movie version.

The top selling book is A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens…definitely a bestseller, but I’m not sure that I would say it had a fandom like Oz. However, it did have mass popularity, like Gone with the Wind. The difference, in think, is that the movie versions haven’t been huge box office.

Number two, though? Lord of the Rings (“published as a series”…I assume they are totaling the sales of the individual titles.

That one certainly had fandom, with people who spoke in Elvish. :)

Returning to the adjusted-for-inflation box office champs, some of the others based on bestsellers are:

  • #7 Jaws
  • #9 The Exorcist
  • #11 101 Dalmations
  • #16 Jurassic Park
  • #24 The Godfather
  • #26 Mary Poppins
  • #29 Thunderball
  • #32 The Jungle Book
  • #36 Love Story
  • #40 Pinocchio

Disney is well-represented…although their tendency to re-release movies repeatedly does impact that.

Oh, and they list book series separately…that seems odd. Well, those include Harry Potter, of course. ;)

So,  sometimes adaptation of books can make great movies…although it isn’t always true, and I’d say the reverse (great books based on movies) is…somewhat less likely. ;)

What do think? Have you ever loved a book…and then loved its movie adaptation? Have you ever been part of book fandom, getting together with other fans of a certain book?  I’m guessing, conversely, you’ve been inspired to read a great book based on seeing its movie? Feel free to tell me and my readers what you think (and what you’ve done) by commenting on this post.

12 of the 20 USA Kindle store paid bestsellers are in Kindle Unlimited

November 15, 2015

12 of the 20 USA Kindle store paid bestsellers are in Kindle Unlimited

It feels to me like

Kindle Unlimited (at AmazonSmile: benefit a non-profit of your choice by shopping*)

keeps becoming more and more valuable.

I’ve been a happy member of KU since it started. It’s a subser (a subscription service)…you pay $9.99 a month, although we have been able to buy longer periods at a discount (expect to see some deals on this, at least for Prime members, during this holiday season).

There are 1,144,062 books in the program right now, and it keeps growing.

Certainly, those aren’t the “top tier” books, for the  most part…relatively expensive, new titles from the Big Five USA trade publishers.

However, there are a lot of popular books (and solid backlist titles).

I was looking at the

Best Sellers in Kindle eBooks (at AmazonSmile*)

and was surprised to see that fourteen of the top twenty are in KU.

My first thought was that they might books in the

Kindle First books (at AmazonSmile*)

but certainly, that didn’t really account for fourteen. ;)

This one caught my eye (at number 3):

Learn JavaScript VISUALLY
by Ivelin Demirov

It’s in KU, or it’s $0.99. 4.6  stars out of 5, and 263 customer reviews…nice!

Let’s take a quick look a that top 20:

Title KU? Price
The Short Drop No $5.99
Pretend You’re Mine Yes $0.99
Learn JavaScript VISUALLY Yes $0.99
Mechanic Yes $0.99
Rogue Lawyer No $14.99
Roommates Yes $1.99
The Crossing No $14.99
The Einstein Prophecy Yes $1.99
The Bad Buy Arrangement Yes $0.99
Christmas in Good Hope No $5.99
Arrogant Playboy Yes $0.99
Prince Albert Yes $0.99
Life and Other Near-Death Experiences Yes $5.99
Troublemaker No $13.99
Undercover Love Yes $2.99
Bear fur Hire Yes $0.99
The Good Neighbor Yes $4.99
Mine to Tell Yes $3.99
Call Me Killer Yes $0.99
Clara’s Law No $1.99

Update: I wanted to comment more on these figures.

I’ve been writing recently about three tiers of readers, and I plan to do a separate post on that…but I think this top twenty is illustrative of the hypothesis.

Three out of twenty of these books cost more than $10, and would clearly appeal to what I call the top tier of readers.

I want to be very clear: I’m not saying those are better readers, or even the more important readers in terms of the market. :) It’s really a question of price strata and quantity of purchases.

The other seventeen of these would fall into the second tier: people who spend some money for books, but are willing to buy from less traditional publishers, and to wait for other books to go on sale.

What about the third tier?

Those are the ones who almost never pay for books…and they have their own bestseller list at Amazon:

Top 100 Free Best Sellers (at AmazonSmile*)

Some of those books, by the way, are highly rated. For example, Rebel by Elle Casey has 4.5 stars and 371 customer reviews.

More on these three tiers in an upcoming post.
