Бумага vs цифра: 100 : 180 (Amazon)

Over the past three months, for every 100 hardcover books Amazon.com has sold, it has sold 143 Kindle books. Over the past month, for every 100 hardcover books Amazon.com has sold, it has sold 180 Kindle books. This is across Amazon.com’s entire U.S. book business and includes sales of hardcover books where there is no Kindle edition. Free Kindle books are excluded and if included would make the number even higher.

Собственно, перелом в книжных продажах Amazon произошёл ещё на Рождество 2009 года. Но прогресс какой-то слишком быстрый — теперь на 100 проданных книг в переплёте приходится 180 книг для букридера. Остаются, правда, ещё книги в обложке… Но всё равно – примечательный момент. Точка невозврата для США, видимо, и правда преодолена.
