If you have ever wondered who the best-selling eBook authors are, then Chris at Lybray.com has made it easy. He has just implemented a new feature on his home page. It list the top 20 hottest authors. To be on this list, is not just a choice of his. It is done by the computer. The computer keeps track of all the sales on the site and determines which authors have the highest amount of book sales. The person with the most book sales on site naturally achieves the coveted position of number 1. It doesn't matter how many books an author has out. It matters if people are buying them and how many or being sold.

The list of the top 20 best selling authors of eBooks is very interesting. Even Annemann is on the list because people still buy his books from Lybrary.com Aldo Columbini is at position 2 with over 200 eBooks available from the list.

A tip of the hat to Chris for making this information available. It lets you cut thru the advertising hype and see who is really selling a ton of books.

Makes sense but only books at lybrary can participate. On my site for example my ebooks are all in the number one spot. Very competitive.

Or, you can take the opposite approach - why buy e-books that everyone else is buying unless you want to become a clone magician or a cookie-cutter magician? Be original and choose "Do-It-Yourself Magic" e-Books from The Magic Nook that you can individualize until you are truly the unique magician you want to be.

What our customers do with that information is of course entirely up to them. Items that sell well typically also mean that the product is worth your money. Customers are happy, the effect is strong, novel, or the information is valuable, unique, etc. If you do not like items which are popular then of course one can also use this to steer clear of the bestsellers. At the Lybrary we currently have almost 4000 download products for the magician and mentalist. I can guarantee you that there are also many items which are hidden gems that very few have discovered and even fewer are putting to use in their performances.
Lybrary.com preserving magic one book at a time.

LOL. Sometimes the road less traveled is less traveled for a reason. Smile

Quality + Quantity + Service = LYBRARY.COM

I wrote to Chris, he wrote me back...
I called Chris, he answered the phone...
Chris is number 1 on my list.

An argument I simply cannot get my head around. So if I buy any book or video I am a cookie cutter magician? Your argument presupposes that by reading any book - hardcover or e-book - that the reader merely mimics. Michael Vincent has stated that he has been profoundly influenced by Harry Loryane. Bill Malone's big influence is Ed Marlo. Yet Malone and Vincent are not cookie cutter magicians. I am the magician I want to be because I have had the best teachers in the world: the words of all of the magicians who have chosen to teach me through the printed word and each and every one of them EXPECTS me to be the magician I want to be.

Good points Vlad. I recall being in Al's Magic one day and Scotty York came in and bought both volumes of the Alex Elmsley books. Scotty York was no "cookie cutter"
magician.

So true ! There are very strong effects well hidden in some unkown e-books.
