Random House might be mad at the Wylie Agency, but they aren’t holding grudges against Amazon.

Random House Chief Executive Markus Dohle told the German Magazine Der Spiegel that he expects eBooks to contribute to more than 10% of its U.S. revenue next year. The new Kindles have got to help out.

Dohle also told Der Spiegel that eBook revenue in the U.S. is already 8% of its income. Authors like Dan Brown, John Grisham and Stieg Larsson have all helped to contribute to this.

Reuters reports: “‘We’re at 8 percent in the United States currently, it rose by leaps and bounds,’ Dohle told Der Spiegel. ‘I could well imagine that we get beyond 10 percent next year,’ he said.”
