Question of the Day
NEW YORK (AP) - The sales machine that is James Patterson continues in the e-book era.
The Hachette Book Group announced Wednesday that e-book sales for the prolific novelist now top 5 million, with 2 million coming in just the past seven months.
Patterson hit the 1 million mark for e-books in July 2010, making him among the first authors to reach that milestone. Patterson also is thriving on paper.
