Amazon: E-books outsell physical books for the first time ever

December 28, 2009 · Posted in Commentary 

Amazon reported that, for the first time ever, e-books outsold physical books.  This milestone occurred on Christmas Day, more than likely due to people who received Kindles for Christmas.  Amazon’s Kindle Store now stocks over 390,000 e-books.  Amazon also stated that the Kindle became the most gifted item in their history. 

On Amazon’s peak shopping day, Dec. 14, 2009, customers ordered over 9.5 million items worldwide, which is a record-breaking 110 items per second.
