From Amazon Charts:
It was 2007, the year Prince rocked the Super Bowl in the rain, Bob Barker hosted his final episode of The Price Is Right, and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallowswrapped up the saga of a boy wizard fighting the ultimate evil. It was also the year Kindle was born. Happy 10th birthday to Kindle, which gave us the ability to read countless books instantly and hold an entire bookshelf in the palm of the hand. Here are the Most Sold Kindle books for each year since Kindle was launched:
The Handmaid’s Tale
2017: It’s Margaret Atwood’s year — we’re just living it. The Handmaid’s Tale saw fantastic spikes in sales, and the TV adaptation won eight Emmy Awards. Atwood’s cautionary Tale, in which women are forced into roles as servants, reproductive hosts, or soulless hausfraus, has as much punch today as when it was published in 1985.
. . . .
2011: Kathryn Stockett hit a nerve with her book about a group of black domestic workers in 1960s Mississippi who contribute to an anonymous tell-all that puts them in unspeakable danger. But while the danger may be unspeakable, the characters find their voices in their secret book, and Stockett found hers in The Help. The book got a boost from the 2011 movie adaptation, which won an Oscar for Octavia Spencer’s performance.

The Pillars of the Earth
2007: Ken Follett was already a best-selling suspense author before publishing The Pillars of the Earth in 1989, but that mighty historical novel (more than 1,000 pages!) set in twelfth-century England took him in an entirely new direction. Nearly three decades later he’s just published the third book in his Kingsbridge series, A Column of Fire, which sits high on Amazon Charts’ Most Read fiction list. This one weighs in at 927 pages, which is still tough to carry — unless, y’know, you have a Kindle.
