OA book on best-seller list
Cory Doctorow’s new novel, Little Brother, is in its fourth week on the NYTimes best-seller list. Like his earlier novels, it’s available in both an OA and a TA edition. (Thanks to Creative Commons.)
Comment. It takes a second to see what’s happening here. The book isn’t just popular or in demand. It’s a best-seller. The TA edition is selling and it’s selling well. The OA edition didn’t block those sales. By making the book more widely known, it very likely gave the sales a positive boost.
