Not to beat a Dead Symbol, but here’s an update on Dan Brown’s “The Lost Symbol” sales.
The Kindle version is outselling the Hard Cover edition on Amazon’s website!
We’ve been following the back and forth between the publishing industry and Amazon for several months, and this latest data point should really focus some minds.
Publishers worry that Kindle, or other e-book sales, will take share from the ‘fully priced’ Hardcover edition. They should instead look to the fact that their customers are more satisfied with a choice in format. And oh, by the way, the numbers seem to indicate that they make more profit on a Kindle sale thru Amazon than a print edition.
