James Patterson: First novelist to sell 1 million e-books

Congratulations to James Patterson, who is the first novelist to sell a million e-books. At least according to his publisher..

James His publisher, Hachette Book Group, reports that Patterson - famous for his Alex Cross thriller series that includes such bestsellers as Along Came A Spider and Kiss the Girls - has sold 1.14 million e-books.

Not surprisingly, in a statement Patterson shows that he has no animosity toward the new format:

"With more and more people reading on iPads, Kindles, and Nooks, taking time to create interesting, user-friendly, enhanced e-book editions is becoming more and more important," he said.

"And if e-books get people who might otherwise not be reading to pick up a book, then that makes me happy."

His latest novel is Private with Maxine Paetro.
