Just noticed that The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, published more than four years ago, is #1 in the Kindle Store. And it carries a $9.99 price tag. What's it mean?

No - it was the daily deal yesterday at $1.99 - that's why it's #1 today.
It was #469, now it's #1. I didn't realize it had been on sale. Today's $9.99 price threw me. Wonder how long it can stay at the top at ten bucks?

It was one of yesterday's. Lumped in with some other big name books.
Ah yes, I didn't even look at the KDD yesterday. Too busy with Christmas (and it comes to a different email account thatn I generally check at home) and then when I saw that email this morning I just deleted it since it didn't apply any longer.

It means there are new readers with reading devices wanting to catch up on books they've been told are amazing.
Yeah. And that people still don't mind paying $9.99 for a good book.

I'm pretty sure it was ninety-nine cents yesterday. I remember thinking "Huh." when I saw it (was looking over the top-100 lists).

ETA:  I see someone else said it was the daily deal at $1.99.  I'll concede that - I just remember browsing Amazon for a few minutes yesterday and seeing it at a low price. I do remember it was listed as a daily deal, too, now that someone mentioned it.

My agent, Peter Riva, represents Stieg Larsson. I'm thinking I should give up the ghost on this self-publishing business and return to him with my upcoming book. The Larson trilogy (reportedly to be followed by a fourth that was uncovered in draft form on his pc) is truly a success based on word of mouth. Readers simply took to the unique style, protagonist and plot and then spread the word.
