What is the score with eBooks?

September 20, 2010

Amazon made a bit of a splash by saying that it was selling more eBooks than hardcover ones.  It’s one of those stats that may be referred to later on as an era-defining point…

But is it really true?  After all, there are lies, damn lies and statistics… This post suggests that the headline is more of a marketing thing and a reality.

You always have to ask questions with big headline stats like that – I wrote another post about the percentage of p2p use going down – which implied that p2p software per-se was in decline when it was nothing of the sort.
