NYTimes InfoGraphic Shows Best Seller List Determined By A Small Number of Readers

This nifty New York Times info-graphic (link for the full one) shows two important things:

  1. The switch from paper to eBooks has happened with terrifying speed.  The best-seller list is dominated by eBooks.
  2. Since Amazon has something like 95% of the eBook market in the US, and they've sold only a few million of the devices, it implies that something like 2-3% of the US population is what really drives the best-seller list.
