the fault in our stars2John Green is having a good year. For the tenth straight week, his teen hit The Fault in Our Stars is No. 1 on the Digital Book World ebook best-seller list.

The book has been aided by the feature film of the same name, which has grossed more than $100 million worldwide and has become one of 2014’s most profitable movies.

The ebook is also being propelled by a low price. Readers snapped it up last week at $4.99.

Meanwhile, the average price of a best-selling ebook has edged up to $7.52, up from $6.96 last week. Throughout this calendar year, the average price of a best-selling ebook has been between $6.00 and $8.00. When it comes to high-priced ebooks on this week’s best-seller list, Penguin Random House and Simon & Schuster lead the way; they are the only two publishers with titles priced above $10 this week.
