Simon & Schuster adds more books to Kindle


SEATTLE and NEW YORK CITY and Simon & Schuster announced that Simon & Schuster will make 5,000 additional titles available for Amazon Kindle in 2008. According to the companies, Simon & Schuster's latest eBook initiative will more than double the number of Simon & Schuster titles available on Kindle today.

"Kindle is re-igniting a love of reading -- after purchasing a Kindle, customers purchase, on average, just as many physical books, and their total book purchases on Amazon increase by 2.6x. Kindle books are also becoming a meaningful portion of Amazon's overall book sales much sooner than we anticipated -- of the 125,000 books available both as a physical book and on Kindle, Kindle books already account for over 6 percent of units sold," said Jeff Bezos, founder and ceo. "This commitment from Simon & Schuster moves us closer to our vision for Kindle, which is to make any book, ever printed, in any language available in less than 60 seconds."
