- Hyperbole and a Half remains on top this week, and is #19 on the overall Amazon books chart.
- The top six this week are simply a rearranging of the deck chairs. It is after that where things start to get interesting...
- Earlier in the week, the Kindle edition of The Essential Calvin and Hobbes was at #1 for several days, due to a weekend sale. Such was the strength of its saels that even now, days after the sale price ended, it is still sticking around in the top ten.
- Speaking of Kindle sales, this week's chart is dominated by sale-priced Kindle editions of collections from DC, Marvel and Image.
- That domination suppresses somewhat the Winter semester University Effect. Still, editions of Fun Home and Persepolis manage to make the chart.
- Non-Kindle debuts this week are the first Nowhere Men collection, and the pre-order for the third Saga collection. Pay attention to the Saga collection; even though it is debuting way down at #50, when it comes out in March we can expect to see it climb rapidly.
- The 2013 year-end review will likely be out sometime next week. Stay tuned...
