Amazon has announced that it now sells more Kindle ebooks than all print books – that’s hardcover and paperback combined – through the Amazon.com site. Introduced less than four years ago, the Kindle has quickly become Amazon’s top selling product, and now digitised books for the reader have become more popular with its customers than their paper and ink fore-runners.
Wow. Not that I’m surprised. I don’t own a Kindle, but I buy nearly all of my books for the Kindle. (I have an iPad.) 99% of the books that I get the mail these days are review copies sent from publishers. I wonder when that will cease.
