Kindle Watch

Time magazine is reporting that sales of Kindle editions of books now total 12% of total sales at Amazon for those titles. That is, in the universe made up exclusively of the 140,000 titles with Kindle editions available, 12% of sales of those titles by Amazon are in the e-book format. This is double the percentage quoted by Jeff Bezos a couple of months ago. I bought my Kindle in February and love it. I carried a library of books on a single device on my recent vacation trip to California. I did not read them all, of course, but I often keep several books going at once. And when I feel like I still have nothing to read, I can browse the Kindle store wirelessly. I don't own Amazon stock. Wish I did! :-)
