Getting with the Times

As I was searching for a topic for Techbits, I found an entry where the preview said “Starting early next year, the New York Times will be adding best seller lists for both and non-fiction.”  Wait a minute, they’ve been doing that for years!  So what’s the big deal? 
The big deal is that the New York Times will be adding new best seller lists for e-books.  According to the article, sales of e-books for January-September of 2010 are nearly 190 percent higher than for the same period last year and now make up about 10 percent of the trade sales for several major publishers.  The article credited both Amazon’s Kindle and Apple’s iPad as being two major driving forces behind the increase.
