As we discussed last week, Proof of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon’s Journey into the Afterlife by Eben Alexander III (Simon & Schuster) has jumped onto the $3.00 to $7.99 ebook best-seller list due to discounting that occurred early last week. Two weekends ago, Simon & Schuster became the last of the three settling publishers to ink new agreements with retail partners, giving them the power to discount its titles.
See the rest of the the best-seller lists for the week ending Dec. 15:
