Amazon sold over a million Kindles a week in December
“We are grateful to our customers worldwide for making this the best holiday ever for Kindle,” said Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos.
And it was obvious there were a lot of Kindles given as Christmas gifts – Christmas Day 2011 was the biggest ever day of Kindle book downloads.
Another huge seller on the Amazon website was the Steve Jobs biography written by Walter Isaacson.
In fact there were so many hard cover copies sold if they were all oiled one on top of each other they would form a stack higher than Mount Everest.
