I suspect Amazon will keep touting the number of books they offer in a somewhat Stalin-esque "quantity has a quality all its own" way, but I don't think this is the best metric to use to evaluate the amount of useful content that's available.

I think the bestseller lists (which they're obviously working hard to provide) and number of books by popular authors, and percentage of books you'd find at your local Borders would all make better measures of the growth of the Amazon ebook store over time.

You are right on here. Quality means everything when it comes to selection of books, music, movies and just about everything else.

It would be grreat if someone could quantify the number of most popular or quality numbers of publications between Amazon and Connect. I would be most interested in that kind of information.
