E-Book Best-Sellers $8.00 to $9.99 Week Ending 10-13-12

The complexion of the $8.00 to $9.99 list changed this week as Amazon has raised the prices it charges for books in The Hunger Games trilogy. These books were selling for as little as $5, a discount that helped juice sales. Now that the titles are priced slightly higher, their sales rankings are slipping — but with a higher price, they could be netting booksellers and publishers more money despite slower sales.
