You know that feeling when you're on a roller coaster and you're approaching the top of a big hill? 

It's when the coaster slows to a crawl and you hear that "clink, clink, clink" sound just before you pause at the top.  Your stomach sinks a bit because you know in 2 or 3 seconds the car will cross the point of no return and you'll begin picking up massive speed as you race down the other side.

That's how I feel today.  In 24 hours, a few million new Kindle devices will be unwrapped, booted up and all hell will break loose. 

I think I need some more egg nog. 

Merry Christmas, all... and good luck this week!  :)

Ditto for Apple and Google. They both made big moves in the eBook world this year. It'll be interesting to see if it translates to more holiday sales..

I hope you're right.  I feel more like Tom Hanks in Castaway, blowing on that tiny bit of kindling.

I'm like you Laura Rae.  If it happens, good.  If not then I haven't built my hopes up.  I don't want to spend my Christmas anxiously checking sales  ::)

I don't think it's going to be much of a bump. I guess I'll be pleasantly surprised if it is!  ;D

Last year, Amazon had just rolled out Select, and the first few months of 2012 were phenomenal, but it was 100% because of the weighting of the freebies. I mean, I had a book in the top 200 on Christmas Day last year. I am NOT that popular.

If sales are up, I'll be happy for all of us, but just ... guys and gals ... keep those expectations modest.
