Google Play Reveals Its Best-Selling eBooks, Videos, and Games for 2015

best of 2015 google playGoogle has released its year-end "best of" lists for Google Play this week. You can find the lists on a special page in the Google Play Store, and for the sake of convenience I have added the top ten for the ebook list to this post.

The ebook list contains no surprises. All ten titles are works of fiction (or a trilogy), most were blockbuster releases from one of the Big Five publishers, and eight of which are tied to a movie released this year (or in the case of Gone Girl, last October).

The one possible exception is The Martian, which was originally self-published. The edition in Google play Books, on the other hand, was distributed by Random House, so it's presence is not quite the exciting story it first appears..


  1. Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James
  2. Grey: Fifty Shades of Grey as Told by Christian by E.L. James
  3. Fifty Shades Darker by E.L. James
  4. Fifty Shades Freed by E.L. James
  5. American Sniper: A Novel by Chris Kyle, Scott McEwen,  and Jim DeFelice
  6. The Girl on the Train: A Novel by Paula Hawkins
  7. Gone Girl: A Novel by Gillian Flynn
  8. The Martian: A Novel by Andy Weir
  9. Fifty Shades Trilogy Bundle by E.L.  James
  10. Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."

  1. I don’t know if anybody else is having problems, but Google Play is pretty much broken for me this morning. I can’t navigate in it, I can’t search in it, I can’t buy anything from it.

    Did they hire web developers from B&N?
