I have two books out. Out since September. So, being the typical impatient Alpha-male that I am, I want to know how well they are selling. I found two sites, TitleZ.com and Rankforest.com, which track book sales. Neither have numbers for me.

So I was wondering, anyone else know of a site that might be tracking books? A site that doesn't cost an arm and a leg to be in?

I think the site is Bookscan.com that's the expensive one. But has anyone worked with snap-scan.com? What does it mean with it lists books numerically?

Yes. there is another service out there but it is (from what I hear) a hefty monthly price tag to enroll in.

TitleZ seems to use only Amazon data. You can check your ranking on Amazon yourself. Rankforest does Amazon plus B&N, but I suspect that they only use mailorder figures for B&N. In other words, both use electronic sources and mailorder sales.
Word is that Amazon has only a 15 % share of the market, and B&N would be even smaller. The numbers you will get will not tell you much.
There is another source that counts all book sales. The name escapes me, but you'd have to call them up. I believe they cite sales for a given time span, and this may well cost something.
