eBook Sales Make Time Magazine Top 10 Everything List

eBook sales increase numbers made Time Magazine’s Top 10 Everything of 2010 list for numbers. At No. 10, Time Magazine featured the number “193%” which is the percentage increase in eBook sales from 2009 to 2010. Pretty impressive.

Here is more from Time Magazine: “With the emergence of Amazon’s Kindle in 2007, e-books have taken off, most notably in 2010. The Kindle spurred a number of rival platforms, as well as the iPad, and e-books now account for almost 10% of U.S. consumer book sales, according to the Association of American Publishers. The shift from print to e-ink has forced large book chain Barnes & Noble to not only shut a number of stores but also release its own reader, the Nook. The e-book revolution, it seems, has only just begun.”

We agree. Forrester is predicting that eBook sales will be up to $2.8 billion by 2015. And with eReaders on the top of this season’s holiday gift list, these numbers are likely to come true.
