NEW YORK - J.K. Rowling tops the list. Dan Brown is ranked very high.
William Shakespeare just missed out.

It's Amazon.com's top 25 best-selling authors.

The online retailer, celebrating its 10th anniversary, announced its
biggest sellers Thursday, with Rowling no surprise at No. 1. The "Harry
Potter" author was followed by Spencer Johnson of "Who Moved My Cheese?"
fame, romance novelist Nora Roberts and "The Da Vinci Code" author Dan
Brown.

Rounding out the top 10 were Dr. Seuss, John Grisham, Stephen King,
J.R.R. Tolkien, "Left Behind" novelists Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins and
business writer Jim Collins.

Shakespeare was No. 26, one notch below Tom Clancy.

The Seattle-based retailer will unveil its best-selling musicians and
movies next week.
