Some WSJ articles come with expiration timers for non-subscribers.
This one has already moved behind the paywall, alas.

Not sure about Nook but Amazon most definitely does *not* count free ebooks in their sales reports. (Apple talks of downloads mostly so they definitely count freebies.)
Amazon sales reports *do* include the Kindle First freebies that Prime subscribers get because Prime pays full freight for those. That is, Prime pays Kindle and Kindle pays Amazon Publishing.

Why didn't they just say 32 out of the top 100, rather than 32% of 100?

Because one week it might be 31, and the next weeks it might be 33. It's an average.

Google: Fast-Paced Best Seller: Author Russell Blake Thrives on Volumes

Click on the link provided by Google Search. It shows the whole article instead of getting stuck with the paywall.

No idea why that is but from first hand experience, if you google the title of the WSJ article that is behind the paywall, click on it directly from Google Search, you can read the whole article.

I have done that a few times and it works every time.
