Kindle Books Show Rapid Growth

 

In today’s New York Times, Jeff Bezos, Amazon.com, announced the Global Kindle, but what was most interesting was his statement at the end of the article:

 

"Mr. Bezos declined to offer specific information about Kindle sales. But he said Kindle titles were now 48 percent of total book sales in instances where Amazon sold both a digital and physical copy of a book. That was up from 35 percent last May, an increase Mr. Bezos called “astonishing.”

“This has grown much faster than any of us ever anticipated,” Mr. Bezos said."

 

Astonishing indeed.  Trees everywhere are breathing easier!  All one has to do is look at a selection of Amazon.com listings to see that many, many books (I think the number is around 600,000) are now available in Kindle format.

While my own sales numbers (48% are Kindle where both print and electronic are offered) don’t jive with his numbers, we are definitely seeing an increase in activity from the sale of Kindle books.
