The Wall Street Journal has released its first best-seller list using data from Nielsen BookScan.
It includes a couple of indies on the fiction list.
Here’s the methodology Nielsen uses. You’ll note it apparently includes data from Amazon:
Nielsen BookScan gathers point-of-sale book data from about 12,000 locations across the U.S., representing about 75% of the nation’s book sales. Print-book data providers include all major booksellers and Web retailers, and food stores (excluding Wal-Mart and Sam’s Club). E-book data providers include all major e-book retailers. Free e-books and those sold for less than 99 cents are excluded. The fiction and nonfiction lists in all formats include both adult and juvenile titles; the business list includes only adult titles. The combined lists track sales by title across all print and e-book formats; audio books are excluded.
