amazon box 630 300x225 Amazon's 10 Best Selling Books of 2012[1]With the year rapidly coming to an end, Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN[2]) is out with its list of the top 10 best-selling books for 2012[3].

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[4], attracting tons of readers in both digital and print formats.

Here are the top 10 best-selling books on Amazon this year.

  1. Fifty Shades Freed: Book Three of the Fifty Shades Trilogy — E. L. James
  2. Gone Girl: A Novel — Gillian Flynn
  3. Fifty Shades Trilogy: Fifty Shades of Grey, Fifty Shades Darker, Fifty Shades Freed boxed set — E. L. James
  4. Bared to You: A Crossfire Novel — Sylvia Day
  5. No Easy Day: The Firsthand Account of the Mission That Killed Osama Bin Laden — Mark Owen
