The Kindle Revolution Ain’t Happening

We Know How Many Kindles Amazon Has Sold: 240,000

Bullshit.

If it had been anywhere near six figures (that’s in the vicinity of 100,000), I think Amazon’s Bezos would have openly brayed about it. That would have made the print publishers — of all stripes: giant conglomerates as well as small press — scramble into ebooks, tripping over each other to issue press releases about having seen the eBook Promised Land.

But Bezos has been coy and no print publisher has sung a hosannah.

Plus, I haven’t heard a single writer cry out about the Kindle windfall royalty he or she has received.

Finally, the source is TechCrunch, which has a tendency, let us say, to paint glowing pictures of outright dead dogs.

So 240,000 Kindles sold?

No.
