Amazon Now Sells More E-Books Than Print Books

Wow!  This happened a lot faster than I thought it would just a couple of short years ago.

I was surfing the Internet and saw this article from our friends at Computerworld.

Amazon says it sells 105 Kindle based e-books (not counting the free e-books, so these are actual purchases) for every 100 print books.  Did I say this already?  Wow!

From that article:

“Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos said the e-book threshold arrived sooner than expected. “Customers are now choosing Kindle books more often than print books,” he said. “We had high hopes that this would happen eventually, but we never imagined it would happen this quickly.” Amazon has sold print books for 15 years and Kindle books for less than four.”

Glad I got my Nook.  In the Nook of time….haha.
