Remember the shock of learning last year that men’s colored briefs outsold tightie-whities for the first time in history? I mean, who could forget? Well, this is just like that – only digital!
According to an article in the Wall Street Journal, Amazon.com is now selling more electronic books than actual printed books.
Since April 1, Amazon has sold 105 Kindle books for every 100 print books sold. The company has sold more than three times as many Kindle books so far this year as it did at the same time a year ago.
Imagine that. It took colored underwear 75 years to overtake white. E-books have done it in four years! It’s a $1 billion business, and they think it will triple in the next 5 years.
How about you? Do you use an e-reader (like Kindle or Nook) or are you old school? Why or why not?
