Talking There are more than 100,000 Kindle books now

If you go to the Kindle store on your kindle and select books, you will see that the count now is:

All books: 100,024

However if you go to amazon.com and check out kindle books, there are only 99,880. I am not sure about why the discrepancy.

It is just a number, but anyways...

99,789 are books. The rest are blogs and stuff. So actually, there are not 100,000 books now.

Actually, I see two different figures depending on whether I view the Amazon store on my Kindle or whether I look at it on my computer. One is over 100,000, one is less.

But ...

... what if the book you want isn't available in Kindle format? I'm not talking about older books, I'm talking about book whose first publication date is 1 January 2008; mainstream fiction. (People of the Book by Geraldine Brooks if you're curious.) Does Amazon have a process to nominate or request that a given book be made available as an eBook for Kindle? Has someone here come up with a process for contacting publishers?

Not at all. I have access to plenty of eBooks. I can purchase BBeB, LIT, and Mobipocket formats and for LIT and Mobipocket, I can easily convert. So it's no big deal really.

People of the Book shows up on several eBook sites(fictionwise and Powell), but the links don't follow or state that it is no longer available. You can only find its page on fictionwise by searching in google. It doesn't show up in the site's search engine. That may mean that it was in eBook and was withdrawn by the publisher for some reason, maybe they saw some errors, or they may be placeholder pages for when it is released.
