Let’s look at a couple headlines, shall we?

1) 19 books on a recent USA Today bestseller list sold more e-book copies than print. In fact, the list’s top six books all sold more e-versions than print versions. According to USA Today, it’s the first time the Top 50 list has had more than two titles in which the e-book sold more than the print copy.

2) 1 in 4 Americans own an eBook reader. Affordable eBook readers like the Nook and Kindle Fire sold like hotcakes in advance of Christmas, and now at least a quarter of the people in this country are reading eBooks.
