I got that number "over 5000" from a Sony press release somewhere -- I'm assuming that it's not much over 5k, or they'd have phrased it differently.

I think the main reason that Librie' didn't sell very well was that it would only do TXT and BBeB, and their content service only "sold" (or as rluazon will no doubt point out: "rented" ) you content for 60 days, after which time files would expire.

I thought about trying to get and hack a Librie' but the 60 days thing stopped me so fast that I didn't even find out about the TXT only limitation until earlier this year.
