BooksOnBoard Releases Bestseller List for First Half of July


WEBWIRE – Thursday, July 17, 2008

Stephenie Meyer returns to the BooksOnBoard bestseller list with the Twilight Fantasy Series eBook Bundle. Meyer’s Twilight series ebooks have remained a fixture on bestseller lists, as has The Host, her most recent novel geared toward an adult audience.

“This surge of popularity in the Twilight Fantasy Series eBook Bundle, which includes the Twilight, Eclipse, and New Moon ebooks, pre-sages Harry Potter-like popularity for Meyer’s new eBook, Breaking Dawn,” according to BooksOnBoard CEO Bob LiVolsi. “We’re seeing new fans reading ther series for the first time and long-time fans re-reading it in anticipation of the August 2nd release of Breaking Dawn. And Stephenie’s fans are active people. They like the fact that an eBook can go just about anywhere on a PDA phone, laptop, or Cybook. They can bring the entire series on something as small as an SD card. No extra luggage for traveling, biking or hiking.”

In addition to Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight Fantasy Series eBook Bundle, bestsellers for the first half of July also include The Last Patriot, an eBook thriller by Brad Thor; followed by Jack Campbell’s The Lost Fleet: Valiant, the latest in his popular eBook sci-fi series; Nothing to Lose, a suspense mystery by Lee Child; Kevin J. Anderson’s Sci-Fi eBook The Ashes of Worlds. Other bestsellers include Plague Ship by Clive Cussler, Queen of Babble Gets Hitched by Meg Cabot, and Executive Orders by Tom Clancy. Stephen King’s The Stand returned for an encore stint, two decades after first occupying bestseller lists.

“Executive Orders by Tom Clancy came out as an MP3 Audio Book when we launched that line a few weeks ago last year, but had a renewed surge in popularity over the 4th of July weekend,” said Nathan Johnson, BooksOnBoard’s Director of Operations. “The huge wave of interest in MP3 DRM-free audio – particularly for iPods, iPhones and Zune - seemed to drive it. With many of the MP3 Audio Books under $10, customers are very happy about them. They’re also happy that they can get good prices without monthly subscriptions or long-term commitments. Our price is our price – without gimmicks.”

Dangerous Secrets, the newest novel from Lisa Marie Rice, topped the Romance bestseller list, followed by the latest installment of Gena Showalter’s Midnight Breed series, The Darkest Pleasure. Death Angel by Linda Howard rounds out the top three. Other bestselling Romance authors include Lorelai James, Angela Knight, Jenna Peterson, Lorraine Heath, Sarah McCarty, Jaci Burton, and Lori Foster.
