Hit TV shows boost book sales

Popular TV dramas have prompted the surge in sales of the original books.

In the Name of the People, an anti-corruption novel, has become the most favored choice on Kindle's paid eBooks and the eighth popular printed book in Amazon.

The company has attributed the sales boom to the novel's smash TV adaptation, which went viral online in March. Statistics show the purchases of the book's e-version increased 24 times three months after its screening, and printed copies surged 12 times.

Hong Kong author Isabel Nee Yeh-su's The First Half of My Life is another example. The recent TV adaption of the novel caused a book buying craze in China. Purchases of the book's hard copies rose 600 times a week after the TV play was aired earlier this month.
