New York Times Cuts a Range of Bestseller Lists - Publishers Weekly

Panzer was tootling around in the Catosphere when he heard yelling and screaming and gnashing of teeth ahead of the Panzermobile. Following all the noise took our brave kitty to the Publishers' Weekly site. There he found a post about the New York Times' Bestsellers List.

According to the post by Calvin Reid, the New York Times (NYT) is cutting the mass market paperback, middle grade ebooks, young adult ebooks, graphic novels and manga lists. The New York Times (NYT) states the changes will allow them more space for coverage other than bestseller lists. The NYT will announce the specific bestseller lists as they are eliminated.
How did they choose?

Panzer says, "This little kitty is confused ... How did they decide which lists to cut? Did they see the ebook authors having all their email list subscribers pre-order their books so they could claim NYT Bestseller status? Just asking."

Note: This is a shortish-medium post. Bring a cup of tea and a muffin for today's reading selection.
