Go Lizbeth Go! Part Two

Kobo Books has checked in now too.

From their press release:

Kobo became the first eReading service to launch an eBook gifting and gift card program and for the first time in history, eBooks “arrived” digitally in people’s email accounts this Christmas morning. The top three most popular eBooks gifted this holiday were:

The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson
The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest by Stieg Larsson
Room by Emma Donahue

Kobo also shared its Holiday 2010 best-selling eBook titles globally, a list dominated by Stieg Larsson’s Millennium Trilogy series which includes the popular titles “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”, “The Girl Who Played with Fire” and “The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets’ Nest”.

Top three Kobo eBook title sales by country:

Canada
1. The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest by Stieg Larsson
2. The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson
3. Room by Emma Donahue

United States
1. The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson
2. The Girl Who Played With Fire by Stieg Larsson
3. The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown

United Kingdom
1. The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson
2. The Confession by James E. Mcgreevey
3. The Girl Who Played With Fire by Stieg Larsson

Australia
1. The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson
2. The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest by Stieg Larsson
3. The Girl Who Played With Fire by Stieg Larsson

Rest Of World
1. The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson
2. Dead Or Alive by Tom Clancy
3. The 4-Hour Body by Timothy Ferriss

I find it incredible that so many people didn’t read or own the book prior to this, despite it already being such a huge seller in print. I wonder how much desire was created by the cover being used over and over again in device images?
