James Patterson Has Sold 1 Million Kindle eBooks


Amazon announced yesterday that James Patterson has sold over 1 million Kindle ebooks (1,005,803 to be exact). He is only the second author to reach this mark, making him the second member of the “Kindle Million Club,” which recognizes authors whose books have sold over 1 million copies in the Kindle Store. This only includes paid Kindle sales, not free downloads.

Stieg Larsson, author of the Millennium Trilogy, was the first author to hit the 1 million mark. Larsson’s three books—The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire, and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets’ Nest—are among the top ten bestselling Kindle books of all time.

It’s actually pretty amazing that Larsson beat Patterson to the 1 million mark since Larsson has only published three books (albeit insanely popular ones) versus Patterson’s catalog of more than 65 books.

Patterson’s latest book, Don’t Blink, is currently number 31 on the Kindle bestseller list. All three of Larsson’s books are still in the top ten.
