Downloading the National Indie Bestseller Lists -- Hardcover, Paperback, and Children's -- in PDF, Word, or HTML format from BookWeb.org each week just got easier.
In response to requests from member booksellers, the American Booksellers Association has created a permanent URL for each list that can be used to download the most recent list each week. For example, booksellers can bookmark the Hardcover List in PDF format at http://www.bookweb.org/files/open/files/lists/indielisth.pdf, and each week when they click on the link late on Wednesday afternoon, they will find the latest Hardcover Bestseller List for download.
Below are the permanent URLs for each list. As usual, all current National Bestseller lists can be found at http://www.bookweb.org/indiebound/bestsellers/national.html, and past lists are available at http://www.bookweb.org/indiebound/bestsellers/national/2008.html.
