Do you see that one extra word in the title? It changes everything.
I first heard about this story through a couple of the ebook blogs I follow. One missed that one little detail, and I wanted to make sure you caught it. After you think about it for a few minutes you should realize that this news doesn't really tell us anything that the ebookstore sales announcements hadn't already told us last week.
Millions of gift-wrapped iPads, Kindles, Nooks and other digital reading devices resulted in an unprecedented surge in sales of e-books last week.
USA TODAY's Best-Selling Books list, to be published Thursday, will show digital's new popularity: E-book versions of the top six books outsold the print versions last week. And of the top 50, 19 had higher e-book than print sales.
It's the first time the top-50 list has had more than two titles in which the e-version outsold print.
There was a bumper sale of ebooks in the week after Christmas. That's all.
