The top six books in the overall best-seller list this week were all priced above the $10.00 threshold, suggesting that consumers are still very willing to pay what they consider to be high prices for ebook titles they want. At the same time, the average price of a top-25 best-selling ebook fell by about a dollar this week to $9.45 and for the first time in months, a book not in the top-25 overall made the top ten in the $10.00 and above category.
