Ebook Best-Sellers $10 and Above Week Ending 3-24-13

As we discussed last week, the $10 and above price point is falling out of favor with publishers and consumers. We see it in the sub-$8.00 average price of a best-selling ebook and that there are only six titles this week in the overall top-25 that are price $10 or more.

See the rest of the the best-seller lists for the week ending March 24:
