Nielsen BookScan in a joint agreement with the Wall Street Journal will now make available bestseller lists that include eBooks. Until this agreement, the bestseller list was composed of hardcover and paperback print books only.

Beginning this week, there will be four bestseller charts provided by BookScan; “combined eBook and physical sales for fiction and non-fiction, and eSales only for fiction and non-fiction.” The data for the lists will be gathered from Amazon, B&N, Apple and Google.

Jonathan Stopler, VP of Nielsen BookScan said in a press release: “As consumers and booksellers continue to embrace the potential of eBooks, we are very happy to be working with The Wall Street Journal to produce the most accurate bestseller charts available. These new charts uniquely reflect what people are really buying and reading and will most definitely advance the industry’s understanding of eBook bestsellers.”
