John Grisham's Sycamore Row was once again the bestselling paid book in Apple's iBooks store for the week ended November 11.
Books with film adaptations had a good showing last week -- Markus Zusak's The Book Thief, originally published in 2006, sat in the #2 spot following the November 8 release of the movie based on the novel. Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card made the list once again, sliding one spot to #3, as the film version continued in the top 5 at the weekend box office. Solomon Northup's Twelve Years a Slave, also enjoying a boost from a movie adaptation, landed in the #8 spot.
New to the list last week was Double Down, Mark Halperin & John Heilemann's account of the 2012 election, at #4; Jeff Kinney's Diary of a Wimpy Kid at #6; and Michael Connelly's 2011 novel, The Fifth Witness at #10.
