Top Ten Best-Selling Ebooks -- Week of May 3

This week finds The Target by David Baldacci still hanging onto the No. 1 position on the Digital Book World Ebook Best-Seller List.

That's particularly noteworthy given the title's price: $12.74. Ebook prices have reached a high point in recent weeks, yet it's surprising all the same to find a No. 1 best-seller with such a high price-tag relative to the competition.

Hachette rounds out its successes with the Pulitzer-Prize-winning The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt, still selling strongly this week, at No. 3.
