The New York Times has announced that it will be including E-Books in its best seller lists from the start of next year, in both fiction and non fiction. The New York Times has been publishing best seller lists for over 75 years, since 1935.
The NYT has said that the lists will be compiled from weekly sales data from publishers, independent booksellers and chain bookstores, as well as other sources.
E-Book sales are continuing to rise steadily, and have risen quite a bit in 2010, although they still only account for a small percentage of overall book sales, but with the popularity of the Amazon Kindle and the Apple iPad, this is something which is bound to change over the next few years.
