The store seems to get updated daily. 2 Million was the number at launch--not sure how many there are now, or how many of them are in the public domain.

Also, there are geographical restrictions on some books, so the choices I see available to me in Canada and the choices to a reader in the US or Australia are not always the same. My own experience, as a Canadian, is that there are a significant number of books I cannot buy through the Amazon US site (well not without some sketchy machinations) that are available to me in Canada. If Amazon someday opens a Canadian site, that may change.
