A Boost For E-Readers!

In probably what could be a first in the book industry – and especially for the online one – e-book downloads of Amazon Kindle outsold paperbacks, in the US, in the last quarter of 2010! And this is exclusive of Amazon’s own freely downloadable books.

Amazon is the world’s biggest online retailer and has recently acquired other sites and a major DVD mail-order and streaming business. Even though the sales of paperbacks have increased, most people – especially youngsters and those who travel widely – opt for the online version as it’s more convenient.

The Kindle device itself has recorded brilliant sales in the US and abroad.
