Amazon reports that it sold more books in digital format than in paper form on Christmas Day.
Just coincidentally — Diana gave me a Kindle for Christmas. Honestly, I did not mortgage the house to buy the entire Boxcar Children series for Sierra! I only bought Patrick O’Brian’s Navy and accidentally bought something else they quite readily cancelled with a second click of the Kindle. I’m enjoying it a lot so far.
Also in e-book news — Borders has joined the digital bookselling gold rush via an investment and business relationship with Kobo.
