Analysts Say Kindle Now Creates Nearly 10% of Amazon’s Revenue

It seems that Amazon’s Kindle is poised to hit something of a milestone in terms of its influence on the company as a whole.  A recently released Citi analysis has come to the conclusion that the Kindle now accounts for just short of 10% of Amazon’s total revenue, if you take into account all hardware […]

Kindle Books Hit New Milestone: Beating Out Paperbacks

So, as I recall it was last summer when Kindle books began beating out purchases of Hardcovers on the Amazon site.  This was a big deal because it illustrated for people that eBooks were pretty clearly here to stay in a way that previous announcements of numbers (not that Amazon was the company making any […]

Amazon.com Books For Kindle Count

Today I decided to take a break from Kindle 3 Reviews and do something I didn’t do for a long time – crunch some dry Amazon Kindle Store numbers. I’ve been tracking number of amazon.com books and blogs for Kindle since March 2009. Previously I published these numbers on a monthly basis. With Kindle 3 […]

Kindle Books from March 2009 to May 2010

It has been 14 months since I monitor Kindle book store size on a daily basis. I started it in April 2009. Back then Kindle software 2.0.2 was just released, Amazon was being sued by Discovery Communications and Amazon itself was sending DMCA takedown notes to MobileRead.com, Fujitsu FLEPia was expected to take eReader market […]

October 2009 Summary

If you recall, there was a massive drop in book numbers in the last day of September. Well during the first week of October these books came back. So if we disregard this anomaly and consider 357,724 to be the final count for September, then with the final count for October being 368,373 we get […]

Kindle International Coverage Update Before Launch

I’ve been keeping track of the number of books that is available to every country with the intent of publishing the delta like the previous one. However in the last couple of days updates were so many that it doesn’t make sense to highlight any country in particular. Pretty much every since one has gotten […]

Kindle International Coverage Update

Since I published the Kindle International Coverage table it already became outdated as Amazon has made roughly 10,000 books available to several countries. I have updated and table now. I’ll make another check on the 19th when Kindle 2 international ships and then I’ll post updates on a weekly basis. Here is the summary of […]

September 2009 Summary

There were some oddities with Kindle content count in the month of September. Just look at these graphs below… Kindle book count was steadily increasing at 280 books per day for the entire month and Kindle store was about to post a gain of 8K+ books for the month when on the last day there […]

August 2009 Summary

It’s time to publish previous month stats and summaries again. Kindle book count had several ups and downs during the month of August, finally settling at 349,610 (just 390 books shy of 350K) for an overall increase of 13,713 that translates to 442 books per day on average. This is 3 times lower than previous […]

July 2009 Summary

It took me a bit longer than usual to come up with the summary but here goes… Kindle book count increased 41,016 (13.8%) in the month of July with final count being 335,897. Notice odd fluctuations between the 9th and 14th. Perhaps some publisher couldn’t make up their mind… Besides that book growth was linear […]
