Amazon has just released the list of their ten best-selling books of the year, and Walter Isaacson’s thoughtful biography of Steve Jobs has come out on top.

The biography’s appearance at the top of the list is a bit of a surprise considering its relatively late publication this year, but the book’s impressive sales performance was fueled by the huge show of fan support after the Apple co-founder’s untimely passing in October.

Amazon culled these rankings from both their traditional book sales figures and Kindle eBook downloads, and this year two titles submitted through Amazon’s Direct Publishing program have made the top 10: Darcie Chan’s “The Mill River Recluse,” and Chris Culver’s “The Abbey”.

While Isaacson’s take on the life of Jobs took Amazon’s top honors, it doesn’t seem to have fared as well over at Barnes and Noble. According to their list of the year’s best-sellers (which to be fair only runs through November 21), Jobs’s biography rounds out the top five. It’s performance as a eBook in Nook’s line-up is even less impressive: it lands at #33 on the nookbook bestseller list, behind the compiled Hunger Games trilogy and something called “Mail-Order Christmas Brides.”

Here’s the full list of Amazon’s best-sellers, in case you’re looking to finish up your holiday shopping with a few good books.

1. “Steve Jobs” by Walter Isaacson
2. “Bossypants” by Tina Fey
3. “A Stolen Life” by Jaycee Dugard
4. “The Mill River Recluse” by Darcie Chan

9. “The Abbey” by Chris Culver
10. “Inheritance (The Inheritance Cycle)” by Christopher Paolini

Grand Apple store

Apple’s largest retail store is under construction in Grand Central Terminal in New York City. It takes up an entire mezzanine level at one end of the grand hall. Currently, the construction site is boxed up and draped in black, they added a large digital sign with lettering that flips just like the signs showing the latest trains and tracks above the ticket booths.

The store was supposed to open in time for Black Friday, but now it looks like it won’t be ready until December 9. When it does open, it will be the largest Apple store in the world, with 23,000 square feet and 300 employees.
