"More Best Sellers Data Available to Developers via the New York Times API"

From the NY Times “Open Blog”:

We recently announced the addition of e-book data to our Best Sellers API. In order to support the new data, we had to reduce the scope of the API a little. But we’re expanding it again: the Best Sellers API now goes back to June 8, 2008. We’re hoping to add data from 2006 and 2007 soon.
