Kindle e-books now out-selling paperbacks

KindleLast year we saw e-books outsell their hardback counterparts, but another arguably more important milestone has just been passed: e-books now outsell all paperback books on Amazon. Now for every 100 paperbacks Amazon sells, 115 e-books are sold, making e-books the most popular book format available. That number excludes the free and out of copyright e-books that Amazon distributes too, otherwise the ratio would be even higher.

With over 810,000 e-books available from Amazon's Kindle store alone, it looks like the days of the paper book are numbered. Whether you like it or not, e-books are here to stay, and paper will eventually go away.
