Since 1997, you’ve been coming to BarnesandNoble.com to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, BN.com is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

NY Times Best Seller List Revised

Fabulous News!

 

I checked out the NY Times Best Seller List this morning for February 13th and the listings have been revised to include:

 

Combined Print & E-Book Fiction

Combined Print & E-Book Non-Fiction

 

And there are separate categories exclusively for E-Book Fiction and E-Book Non-Fiction.

Any comments on why?

 

I suspect it supports the view that ebooks are outselling or at levels comparable to other book types (e.g., hardcover, paperback), so a combined view is a better reflection of popularity?

Kinda reminds me of how B&N have a category just for NOOKbooks on the bar at the top of the page, but if you select the one for Books, you still get more NOOKbooks than printed books in your results.  I wonder if there is a way to filter that so that you can just see the printed books after a search and not have to wade through all the NOOKbooks.  (I have to admit that I have not clicked on NOOKbooks, done a search, and looked to see if printed books are included in the results.)

Peppermill, I did not see any comments by the NY Times for this revision, however, I side with your opinion that a combined view is a better reflection of popularity.
