While Divergent and its sequel Insurgent are still Nos. 1 and 2 on this week’s ebook best-seller list, a new title from best-selling author Nora Roberts has spiked to No. 3.
Shadow Spell: Book Two of The Cousins O’Dwyer Trilogy (Penguin Random House) jumped 19 spots from its previous position on the list to depose Allegiant (the third Divergent series title) from its position. That said, Allegiant is still No. 4 and the Divergent trilogy as a bundle is No. 5.
While HarperCollins is certainly the winning publisher in the first quarter (new ebook publisher power rankings coming soon!), Penguin Random House is now making a very strong push — what many in the industry have come to expect from the powerhouse publisher.
PRH has five of the top-ten best-selling ebooks this week with Divergent taking four of the top five and Amazon sitting in the No. 10 spot with its ebook hit Hidden (by Catherin McKenzie).
Meanwhile, the average price of a best-selling ebook inched up this week to $6.42, from $6.24 last week.
