Grisham Unseats Flynn on Ebook Best-Seller List

Gray Mountain by John GrishamJohn Grisham’s Gray Mountain hits the top of the Ebook Best-Seller List this week, swapping places with Gone Girl, the Gillian Flynn novel that held strong at No 1. for the past six weeks.

Two other Gillian Flynn titles remain within the top 25, though: Dark Places and Sharp Objects. And it’s all good news anyway for Penguin Random House, which publishes both Grisham and Flynn.

Self-published ebooks hold strong this week, three of them by Deborah Bladon–the same number of titles the author had on last week’s list–with Penelope Ward’s hit Stepbrother Dearest remaining inside the top ten.

The average price of a best-selling ebook takes a sharp turn upward after a recent dive, from $6.26 to $7.36.
