Tracking Amazon: Oscar Movies See Sales Increase -Publisher’s Weekly
A number of books that inspired films nominated for an Academy Award this year are seeing a sharp uptick immediately following the Sunday night telecast of the show.
The biggest jump was The Descendants by Kaui Hart Hemmings. It jumped to #114 from #1,164 (a 921% sales spike). Which book were you rooting for during the Oscars?
Personally, I was very surprised about War Horse and disappointed about Harry Potter. However, I was extremely happy for The Help, Hugo, and The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore. A big congratulations to The Artist – back to the basics (for film, sound, music, and screenplay!) for the movies!
