Smashwords Has Published 100,000 eBooks

The self-publishing distributor Smashwords hit a new milestone earlier this week, just in time for its fourth anniversary. The world’s largest indie ebook distributor is now handling 100,000 eBooks from over 36,000 authors and publishers.

This four-year-old company is far and above the competition, and it handles more self-published titles than anyone short of Amazon (and possibly B&N PubIt!). Smashwords distributes to the Kindle Store, B&N, Kobo, iBooks, and it sells DRM-free eBooks in multiple formats direct from its website to anyone, anywhere in the world (via).
