It’s been over a month since ebook best-seller prices averaged in the $7.00 – $8.00 range. While last week saw a slight up tick, this week the average price gained nearly $2.00 to arrive at $7.77.
Penguin Random House titles continue to be well represented in the top 25; eleven titles from the publisher ranked among top 25 for the second week in a row. PRH also had the only title priced between $8.00 – $9.99 that landed on the top 25 list–The Final Cut, by Catherine Coulter.
In the $0 – $2.99 range, 5 of the top 10 titles were self-published this week. These lower cost titles in conjunction with likely ebook discounting from traditional publishers during the holiday retail season could mean that this week’s sudden rise in the average price won’t be repeated anytime soon.
