Kindle Sales Figures

Forbes magazine used a number of metrics to estimate the figures Amazon won’t release to anyone about their sales. They found that roughly 43.7 million Kindle devices have been sold, including e-readers and tablets.  They further estimate that each device averages 10 ebooks purchased totalling $530 million in annual sales.

This isn’t a surprise for authors. Amazon continues to be the prime mover of ebooks no matter who published the work.
