Amazon is normally hush-hush about sales numbers for Kindle devices, but the online retailer issued a press release in late December indicating it had sold more than one million Kindles during each week of December.  The top three sellers reported on the site were the Kindle Fire and two electronic readers, the Kindle Touch and Kindle, but some analysts estimate the number of Kindle Fire devices sold to be as high as five-and-a-half million in December.

Coupled with the release of 2011 print sales numbers, which fell by about 9% last year (double the rate of 2010) and the welcomed news that Amazon has launched Kindle Library Lending , it should be an interesting year for e-book growth opportunities, and Scribe Publishing Company will be keeping its eye on the trends.
