Digital book sales already 10% of all Amazon book sales

I guess you already know that Google has reached a settlement in its copyright case with several major publishing houses, allowing it to get on with its plans to build a “digital book archive”. All sounds a bit sinister to me. Not sure why, but there you go. I think it’s just my anti-centralisation instinct. Anyway, that’s not the point of this post. Rather, I was fascinated to learn today that sales on Kindle (not yet available in the UK) already account for 10% of all Amazon book sales. Golly.
