The list was compiled based on Amazon sales of first editions, published this year, in both print and Kindle e-book formats.
Perhaps not surprisingly, two of the year’s best-sellers came from E. L. James’ racy Fifty Shades of Grey series, which gave critics fits but became a publishing phenomena, attracting tons of readers in both digital and print formats.
Here are the top 10 best-selling books on Amazon this year.
- Fifty Shades Freed: Book Three of the Fifty Shades Trilogy — E. L. James
- Gone Girl: A Novel — Gillian Flynn
- Fifty Shades Trilogy: Fifty Shades of Grey, Fifty Shades Darker, Fifty Shades Freed boxed set — E. L. James
