Does buying the Kindle Edition count towards bestseller lists?

An old friend put out her first book, and I want to pre-order it, but I also want to help it "pop." If I buy the Kindle Edition instead of the hardcover, will it still maximally count for the popularity trackers like NYTimes bestsellers and Amazon Best Of, or whatever? Or is that too "new media"?

Good designer to convert PDF to ebook?

I have a PDF that I'd like to convert to ebook format. It's straightforward - body text with just a handful of images - but the ebook needs to have the same font and style of the PDF. (I also have it in InDesign, if that helps.) I'm looking for a designer, or design agency, who has worked on ebooks before, who can take this on. Any recommendations? [more inside]

Best way to scan printed book to ebook?

I need to take an already-printed book and scan it into a format appropriate for e-book publishing on say the Amazon Kindle store and similar. I do not have the original book proofs in digital format. If I simply took the book to Kinko's and had it scanned as images or a PDF, would that be likely to work well or is there a better option? What resolution and format would be best?
