‘The Help’ Is The First Single Title To Sell A Million Copies On Kindle

16 August 2011

From PaidContent:

Two more authors, Kathryn Stockett and Janet Evanovich, have joined the growing group of authors who have sold over a million copies of their books on Kindle. In other words, Kathryn Stockett’s first novel, The Help, has sold over one million copies as an e-book. She is the only author to sell over a million copies of a single title on Kindle.

. . . .

The Help is #1 on the Kindle bestseller list this morning, where Penguin has priced it at $9.99. The book has been in the Kindle top 100 for 623 days.

  1. You know what’s really cool about the Kindle bestsellers? It’s tough as hell to game the list or buy your way onto it. So I can feel pretty confident that if Amazon says they sold a million copies, then a million copies were sold.

    Yay for all the Kindle Millionaires. Hope they sell millions more.

    • JW – I too much prefer the bestseller lists generated by Amazon’s computers to those compiled by the sensitive souls at the NYT.

  2. I would be very curious as to how much it cost to get The Help into the ad rotation for the Kindle screensaver thingy.

    And I would be very interested to learn how much of a difference that made in sales.
