Reader Poll: Do You Buy More Ebooks than Physical Books?

By Jason Fitzpatrick on May 20th, 2011

Yesterday Amazon announced that they now sell more Kindle books than physical books. Where do you fit on this shift towards digital reading?

The Kindle is barely approaching its 4th birthday. Yet in less than four years the Kindle has begun generating enough digital sales that Kindle books account for more book sales at Amazon than paperback and hardcover combined. Now, it’s worth noting, ebook sales still account for a very tiny amount of the total book sales but it still raises the question: how many of you are buying more ebooks than physical books?
