Amazon is now selling more Kindle books than print books. For every 100 print books Amazon sells it moves 105 Kindle e-books.
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.
