A UK publisher is happy with Waterstones ebook sales

Two Faber ebooks are currently on top of the Waterstone's ebook sales chart.
Quote:
Henry Volans, head of digital publishing at Faber, said he was delighted with the sales success: "Given that we’re selling to a restricted group, The Private Patient and The Book of General Ignorance are achieving a remarkable success rate. We’re confident that our e-book sales will only grow in the run up to Christmas as more and more people buy or are given the Reader. We're now busy expanding our ebook list."
Faber plans to release its frontlist in e-book format alongside print from "early next year for those books where we have an ebook royalty in place”, Volans added. RRP would be set to match the lowest-priced available print edition, he said.
