Can I trust this list anymore?
But sadly now I think I can't really trust this list anymore as it has become so influenced by Amazon's price cuts war, that it no longer reflects what people are really reading, but what they are buying cheaply for their Kindle.
Are they really reading these "bargains" or are they, like me, snapping them up while they are cheap, to read later.
That's right, I am as guilty as any, but I suspect you have to go quite a long way down the list to find a book that is really knocking everybody's socks off. I now have dozens of the e-books on my Kindle waiting to be read on a rainy day, and predictably that is a long time in coming.
Don't get me wrong: there are some good books on the list - find it here - but I just think factors other than quality at times influence positioning.
But I've nothing to support this theory and I'd be quite happy for you to prove me wrong.
Take a look at the top 20 and tell me what you think.
