Publisher “Stunned” By Kindle Sales
Silicon Alley Insider had reported on Evan Schnittman’s – of Oxford University Press – response to unexpectedly strong sales via Kindle:
That prompted Schnittman to look at his royalty statements, which he said “stunned” him: He had expected to sell up to 200 Kindle titles in December, but says the real numbers were “an order of magnitude” more than that.
Schnittman says that a buddy from ‘one of the biggest trade publishers in the world’ called him this week and explained to him how well the Kindle formatted eBooks were selling. In light of this news Evan Schnittman went to look at his royalty statements which “stunned” him. Schnittman says he has no idea if these kinds of sales will continue, but says that this has turned him from a digital skeptic into a digital believer and with sales figures like that it’s no wonder he’s a believer now!
With all this success, it raises the bigger question – How many eBooks does Amazon sell each month?
