SA’s best selling e-books; Amazon

Little is known on the exact number of Kindle users in South Africa (Amazaon had not released comment by the time we published this) but that does not stop them from releasing their best selling books e-books for the duration June 1 2013 to May 31 2014. No surprises here as Inferno by David Brown came tops, the rest you can see after the jump. Amazon also took the opportunity to release their new Kindle Paperwhite which is said to boast a sharper 300-pixel-per-inch screen, allowing it to better compete with models like the Kobo Aura, which has a 265-ppi screen.   Also it’s worth noting that E Ink makes the displays for basically all these e-readers, so it seems unlikely that Amazon would hold an exclusive on a 300-ppi panel — at least not for long. Local pricing and model variants are yet to confirmed.


he top ten best-selling books in South Africa are:

1.       Inferno by Dan Brown
2.       And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini
3.       Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
4.       Never Go Back: (Jack Reacher 18) by Child. Lee
5.       The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt
6.       Sycamore Row by John Grisham
7.       The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty
8.       The Cuckoo’s Calling (Cormoran Strike) by Robert Galbraith and J. K. Rowling
9.       The Hit (Will Robie 2) by David Baldacci
10.   The Storyteller by Jodi Picoult
