Top Ten Best-Selling Ebooks -- Week of July 5

After climbing twenty spots since last week's Digital Book World Ebook Best-Seller List, Dean Koontz's The Neighbor finds itself within the top five best-selling ebooks of the week.

That's especially noteworthy since the title is a Kindle Single.

Short-form ebooks have generally struggled to gain a foothold in the e-reading market, at least for publishers who've tried to establish them as a core business. Conventional wisdom tends to see them as a form of supplemental content. But cases like this suggest shorter digital titles can meet with success independently, too.
