Amazon sells more invisible electric books than actual books
Hard cover ones anyway. Yeah, this one shocked me. Of course, I just downloaded War & Peace for free from Amazon so I guess anything is possible in the modern world of both books and electric files that we call books even though they’re not.
I’m in Los Angeles at the moment, hanging out with the gang from Marketplace. A colleague here points out that it’s rare for Amazon to share any insight into Kindle sales figures and that they’re also about to report earnings so may be looking for a positive story.
Marketplace is on a mission.
We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.
Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
