The return of agency ebook pricing for three of the Big Five publishers hasn't had much visible impact on the Digital Book World Ebook Best-Seller List so far. In the meantime, Penguin Random House continues to dominate the rankings.

The average price of a best-seller jumps up this week on the Digital Book World Ebook Best-Seller List, from $6.89 to to $8.05.
The film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey is due to hit theaters on Valentine's Day, likely propelling two-thirds of James's trilogy up the rankings much the way the Bradley Cooper movie recently helped American Sniper into the No. 1 spot a few weeks ago.
