Kindle is Bestselling Product in Amazon History

Tuesday, December 28, 2010

Amazon reports that the new model of the Kindle is the bestselling product in Amazon history - surpassing the seventh book in the Harry Potter series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo was the most downloaded ebook on Christmas, and the most-gifted ebook.

Amazon does not release exact sales numbers but, according to Bloomberg,  unnamed insiders predict 8 million Kindles will be sold this year. That's at least 60 percent more than had been expected.

The newest Kindle launched earlier this year and is smaller, faster and cheaper - which could account for the brisk sales.

I am one of six remaining finalists in the national competition. The winner of the online voting contest will be published. But I can't get there without lots of support because I am up against some very talented writers.
For this challenge, I had to write a back-of-the-book blurb. Agent Kristin Nelson does an indepth critique of each entry that you might find interesting.

I promise voting is super quick and easy. You can click in, vote and be done in under a minute. No registration is required. Thank you!

I received a Kindle for my birthday. I was not quite sure I wanted one, yet am thrilled with it, even though so far I've spent most of my time trolling the bookstore, uncertain what to actually buy.

I'm glad you are happy with your new Kindle. I certainly enjoy mine. Check out the free books in the Kindle store. There are a number of free romances and some that are very inexpensive. Enjoy!
