The Bookseller reports that as the e-book market grows, some publishers in the United Kingdom have complained that there is no bestseller list for e-book sales specific to the UK. Nielsen can provide a global chart, but not something more focused.

A Nielsen representative said that Nielsen Bookscan “is currently building a global e-book panel” but could not provide a launch date.

Bowkers’s sales figures for the US show that year-to-year e-book sales more than doubled in the first quarter. Apparently this sort of information is not available broken down specifically for the UK, however.
