in brief Amazon is now selling more Kindle books than print books. For every 100 print books Amazon sells it moves 105 Kindle ebooks.

The milestone, noted by Amazon in a statement, highlights how the Kindle ecosystem makes buying easy on many devices. Like many consumers, I often pick up Kindle books because it's simple. Now if Amazon can just find a way to create time in my life to read them.

Kindle books had already surpassed hardcover books months ago.

In addition, Amazon said that its ad-supported Kindle with Special Offers is the best-selling Kindle. That device goes for US$114.

  • The Kindle is such a fantastic move from Amazon. It ties users into their webstore, reduces their cost of service (due to warehousing costs etc), reduces the ease at which people can share hardcopy books AND people pay for the privilege.
