Benjamin Daniels' Confessions of a GP named e-book of the year
29th December 2011
Benjamin Daniels' Confessions of a GP has been named e-book of the year, Futurebook's weighted digital bestsellers chart has revealed.
The copy sold just 8,500 copies in print in the UK, but has proved to be a runaway success in the download market, with more than 100,000 editions sold.
Daniels' hit tells the story of an angry, frustrated and confused family doctor through a series of humorous anecdotes.
It fought off competition from a number of major titles to claim number one spot in the weighted digital bestsellers chart, relegating Stieg Larsson's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo to second place and Stephen Leather's The Basement to third.
Leather and Larsson dominate the top ten with a further three books between them, taking their combined total to five.
Only David Nicholls' One Day managed to break the pair's dominance of the top five e-books this year, while A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin, Emma Donoghue's Room and The Hanging Shed by
Gordon Ferris rounded out the top ten.
