Kindle's 2010 Holiday Sales!

According to the Amazon Kindle facebook page, the sales for this quarter so far have already beaten those for the whole of 2009!  Of course, at less than 1/2 the price of 2008/ 2009 pricing, no wonder, right? Now they are priced so every reader in the family can have one, not just the heavy serious readers!

Of course, better advertising and the big "Ipad versus Kindle" debate brought more eyes to the world of the eReader. In my small town, no longer does my Kindle go by unnoticed... nearly everyone says "Is that one of those thingies?" :-)  Or they say, "Oh I have one... love your skin!" (I have a rose pattern from decal Girl).

So, from Amazon Kindle:

Thank you Kindle customers! Thanks to you, in just the first 73 days of this holiday quarter, we’ve already sold millions of our all-new Kindles with the latest E Ink Pearl display. In fact, in the last 73 days, readers have purchased more Kindles than we sold during all of 2009. We’re grateful for & energized by this response. Thank you for being a customer, The Kindle Team. Kindle: Only $139.
