After confirming that Walter Isaacson’s hardcover edition of Steve Jobs topped print sales, Amazon has released the list of Best-Selling Books of 2011 that accounts for electronics formats as well.
Not surprisingly, the Walter Isaacson biography of Steve Jobs
took the number one spot again.
Following ‘Steve Jobs’ by Walter Isaacson, the second place was nabbed by ‘Bossypants’ by Tina Fey, and third by ‘A Stolen Life’ by Jaycee Dugard.
Naturally, the list considers only paid units and takes into account first editions that were published in 2011.
Commenting on the news, Chris Schluep, Senior Editor of Books, Amazon.com, remarked: “After the year of recommending books to our customers, it’s always fun to see what books really resonated with them.”
“We chose ‘Steve Jobs’ as one of the Top 10 best books of the year, and even though it was published in October, the sales have been phenomenal in both formats. And we’re really excited that Kindle Direct Publishing authors have taken two of the top spots this year for book sales overall,” said Schluep.
