The average electronic Kindle book from Amazon costs roughly $10 per title. While approximately half the price of their paperback counterparts that still adds up to $240 annually for a regular reader (2 books per month). And that's no chump change in this economy.
Fortunately, Paradise Publishers Inc, owners/operators of the popular website, http://www.Free-eBooks.net, has translated their library to the Kindle friendly .PRC (Mobi) format. Thousands of titles are now available for free download ranging in categories from fiction, business, health and more. Kindle owners will have the freedom to download unlimited titles from Free-eBooks.net including classics such as Tolstoy's 'War and Peace', Donald Trump's 'Strategies for Real Estate', and even romance such as D.H. Lawrence's 'Lady Cahtterley's Lover' at no charge.
Research revealed that Amazon may have sold over 500,000 Kindle reading devices in 2008; more than a previous estimate of 380,000. And if Amazon hadn't run short on Kindles in November, it could have potentially sold 750,000. Amazon's all-in Kindle revenue could reach $1.4 billion in 2010, or exceed an impressive 4% of Amazon's revenue that year demonstrating a growing rise in the popularity of electronic books. This means that Amazon could sell 1 million Kindles in 2009 and 3.5 million in 2010.
