Amazon.com users and people who love reading enough to spring for hardcovers were probably always more likely to embrace ebooks than the average reader. But, this is still impressive. It won’t be long until Kindle ebooks eclipse paperback sales on Amazon.com too.
It’s also interesting to hear that Kindle 2 sales have increased three times since the price dropped from $259 to $189. That furthers my belief that the iPad isn’t a Kindle killer. Once the Kindle 2 gets the DX’s new higher contrast screen, that will juice sales further. Christmas is looking good for Amazon.
