This week there was a giant shuffle in the books. The ebooks had a lot of moving around in the lists the whole week before settling in on a top for the week. The New York Times enjoys two new books on it’s list including two new books that came out this week.

Divergent fell off this week, especially with Amazon, only having one book in the top 5. It did well at the beginning, but really started to decline at the end of the week.

The overall winner could go to The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion for the purpose that it’s on two of the three lists. Unlike the weeks of the past, there wasn’t a clear cut winner on the lists.

For the breakdown of the top 5 for the lists, you can go look below:
