Today, Amazon announced their best-selling books of the year. The list includes first-edition titles, both Kindle and hardcover, that were published in 2011.
Topping the charts is Walter Isaacson's "Steve Jobs," in spite of having been released at the end of October. Tina Fey's humorous memoir "Bossypants" ranks second, with "A Stolen Life," Jaycee Dugard's memoir of being held held captive by an abductor for nearly two decades ranked third.
Perhaps the biggest story, however, is that two of the top ten--"The Mill River Recluse" by Darcie Chan and "The Abbey" by Chris Culver--were self published first novels, sold only as e-books for 99c. Both authors have now received offers from major industry players.
See below for the full list, including short summaries of each title.
