Interesting indeed. iPad's not selling books is not really a surprise, but the market growth and the proportion of that going to Amazon is amazing.

Although has anyone seen the new Nook? It looks fantastic.

The thing about the Kindle is that it has a genuine appeal to people who like to read books a lot - like me! Whereas the iPad...well, it's not a dedicated ereader anyway, especially with that reflective screen. The Kindle does it for me because I completely forget I'm reading on a device when I'm using it - which is the whole point of a dedicated reader. I devoured the massive 'Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell' (fantastic book, BTW - well recommended) within a fortnight on it.

Bear in mind, the Kindle has a big lead in sales owning to international distribution - AFAIA, the Nook is only on sale in North America. But I could well be wrong on this.
