Hey. I would even go so far as to say "it is magic!"
I think the best-selling e-ink Kindle is the basic Kindle. Not only in USA, but in Europe, because that is the only Kindle model which is sold locally in UK, Germany, France, Italy and Spain. Those are all big markets and the Touch is not shipped outside USA.
