The Book Standard is a new site from VNU and Nielsen’s Bookscan that utilizes Bookscan data in its coverage of the book industry. For more info click the release on page one.
This is of interest as Bookscan data is hard to come by unless you have a publisher account or see the occasional leaks on Drudge. The Book Standard site will allow access to many category bestseller lists for $9.95 per month — you can review the top three titles in each category for free.
Keep in mind though that Bookscan data does not include Amazon or the retail superstores such as Sams or Costco.
