* Number after the forward slash indicates rank on main list. Previous week’s list rank will not appear in parentheses as it usually does because we have been unable to compile the list for the past two weeks due to Hurricane Sandy.
** Price reflects minimum price across all retailers throughout the week. Price may vary between retailers and may change throughout the week. Contact Iobyte Solutions for more information on e-book pricing.
† Because we are not looking at the change in rankings from three weeks ago, there is no change in ranking this week.
