iBookstore in UK & Ireland Adds Break Out Bestsellers List

Apple’s U.K. and Ireland iBookstores have added a new tool to help readers discover self-published books called Breakout Books. The launch follows the introduction of the same bestsellers list in Apple’s U.S. iBookstore.

The titles on the Breakout Books lists are hand-picked books from emerging authors who have earned high ratings from customers. Apple explains Breakout Books in the iBookstore, as a place to “find the next reading sensation.” Most of the titles cost £2.99 or less.

Smashwords has more: “ This week’s Breakout Books feature showcases 55 self-published titles, approximately 40 of which were distributed to Apple by Smashwords.” Titles on the list include: A Highland Home – A Contemporary Highland Romance by Cali MacKay; A Tangle With Werewolves by Reese Currie; Afterlife Saga by Stephanie Hudson; and Breathe by Elena Dillon, among many others.
