Joe Schmoe is the author of the latest rehab memoir sweeping the nation, and what gets him high these days is knowing how his book is selling. That's why he obsesses over his Amazon ranking and can recite dozens of bestseller lists. But what he really wants is the retail sales information available only through Nielsen BookScan. Now, he—or any author, agent, publisher, bookseller or book-lover—can get that information, through The Book Standard, without a full-on subscription to BookScan.
With the launch of the Book Sales Research Service, The Book Standard is making available select Nielsen BookScan information on a pay-as-you-go basis.
