As of last week, at least two Big Five publishers had begun setting their own prices again on ebooks sold through Amazon. So far, that has yet to shake up the Digital Book World Ebook Best-Seller List.
Simon & Schuster goes from seeing one of its titles within the top 25 to two, while Macmillan-published titles stay off the weekly rankings for a third week running.
The most notable shift this week is the leap that Paula Hawkins's The Girl on the Train takes into the No. 2 spot, up sixteen places from last week. Like six other titles in the top ten, the novel is published by Penguin Random House.
The top ten best-selling ebooks of the week ending January 17:
1. Gone Girl: A Novel by Gillian Flynn (Penguin Random House) -- $4.99
2. The Girl on the Train: A Novel by Paula Hawkins (Penguin Random House) -- $10.99
