But, do bestseller lsts like those published in the New York Times and USA Today take into account eBook sales? What I want to know is how many books would maybe not be in the toip 20 if eBooks were counted? What would the real positions be of the top 10 books. And the ones that don't have any eBook edition would have less sales from peoiple who now are only purchasing ebooks.
