BooksOnBoard Releases eBooks and Audio Books Bestseller Lists; Audacity of Hope by President-Elect Barack Obama Sees Surge in Popularity


The Audacity of Hope, President-Elect Barack Obama’s autobiography, captured momentum since his victory last Tuesday, once again ascending both the eBooks and the audio books bestseller lists at BooksOnBoard.

“Audacity of Hope and Dreams from My Father provide a deeper glimpse of any president-elect than we’ve had since Ronald Reagan,” according to BooksOnBoard CEO Bob LiVolsi. “While the ebooks inspire, the audio books, available in MP3 format, let you hear the history and the dream in President-elect Obama’s own voice. He is a spellbinder.”

Political thrillers, including Divine Justice by David Baldacci and Extreme Measures: A Thriller by Vince Flynn, remained extremely popular in the week following the American elections. Other bestselling thrillers include The Brass Verdict by Michael Connelly and Drop Shot by Harlan Coben.

Both the eBook version and Audio Book version of J. D. Robb’s Salvation in Death topped the bestseller list this week. Suite 606, an anthology that includes novellas by J. D. Robb (aka perennial ebook and audio book bestseller Nora Roberts), Mary Blayney, Ruth Ryan Langan, and Mary Kay McComas, debuted at number 2 on the bestseller list. Vampires continued to bite at the bestseller list with Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer and the TrueBlood Bundle, which includes the first 7 eBooks in the Sookie Stackhouse Southern Vampire Mysteries by Charlaine Harris.

Bestselling author Laurell K. Hamilton led the eBook paranormal romance category with Swallowing Darkness, book #7 in the Merry Gentry, faerie princess series followed by Sherrilyn Kenyon’s new One Silent Night.

In romance, To Seduce A Sinner, the latest in the The Legend of the Four Soldiers Regency Romance series from Elizabeth Hoyt, capped its second week on the eBooks bestsellers list. The Samhain title Rough, Raw, and Ready by Lorelei James followed closely behind.

Other Bestselling Romance eBooks include The Magical Christmas Cat by Lora Leigh, One and Only: Brotherhood of Blood, Book 1 by Bianca D’Arc, All I Want for Christmas Is a Vampire by Kerrelyn Sparks, Ultimate Weapon by Shannon McKenna, Be With Me by Maya Banks, and The Mane Attraction by Shelly Laurenston.
