Barnes & Nobel is now the #1 bookseller in the country, according to Nielsen Bookscan, according the company’s sales numbers.
Nielsen BookScan’s data also show that Amazon’s Kindle, and Apple’s iPad are now the second-most popular sellers on Amazon.
The bookseller’s new rankings come after a string of high-profile launches by Barnes & Nobles titles in recent months.

The novel, set in a post-apocalyptic future, is set in an unnamed American town where the supernatural is prevalent.
It is described as a “drama set in the future where everyone is possessed and the survivors fight for survival.”
Barnes &Nobles also launched its latest book, an adaptation of a novel by a Japanese author, in April.
Amazon’s recent launch of the Kindle and Apple iPads also helped drive the number of Barnes &Nortons books in the Amazon Store to its highest level since 2012.
Nielsen reported that the bookstores total sales have grown from $3.6 billion in 2013 to $8.6 bn in 2017.
The Nielsen Book Scan data also showed that Barnes & Nortons overall revenue grew 14.9 percent to $1.07 billion.

“It’s a sign of great times and great company for Barnes & nortons, and a testament to the growing popularity of ebooks in our country,” said Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos.
“Our readers are increasingly searching for books and ebooks, and the vast majority of our books are available on both the Kindle & iPad.
We know that a growing number of people are interested in reading ebooks and that this new trend is a big part of the reason we’ve made the decision to launch a Kindle and an iPad, two products that our customers are using more than ever.”
