Amazon Reports over 100 million Kindle Exclusive eBooks Downloaded

http://goodereader.com/blog/e-book-n...ks-downloaded/

Quote:
Amazon announced today that 100 million Kindle eBooks have been purchased, downloaded, or borrowed from the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library. This is a huge feat considering there is only 180,000 eBooks currently available.
Popular Kindle-exclusive titles include “War Brides” by Helen Bryan, which has been purchased or borrowed over 270,000 times and has remained on the Kindle Top 10 list for the past 8 weeks; Karen McQuestion’s books “A Scattered Life,” “Easily Amused” and “The Long Way Home,” which have been purchased or borrowed more than 500,000 times; and Ed McBain’s classic and long-running 87th Precinct series, which debuted in 1956 and is now published for the first time in digital and has been purchased more than 250,000 times since December. Other best-selling exclusive books include several titles from Debora Geary, particularly “A Modern Witch” which recently hit #1 on the Kindle best seller list (briefly unseating “Fifty Shades of Grey”) and “Our Husband” by Stephanie Bond, which has been on the Kindle best seller list since July. Both of these authors have sold at least 200,000 copies of their books.

Not surprised. Harder and harder to epublish at Smashwords, easier and easier to epublish at KDP

yeah, download counts seem to be as meaningless as lines-of-code: what if more than half of those lines are pumped out automatically by IDEs to make compilers happy?

sorry, software developer jargon...

Haha. I was just thinking something like this, myself. I figure that a bunch are just sitting around, waiting to be read...

Heck, I'd imagine that a good 30-40% of the ebooks on my Kindle were freebies that I have yet to read.
