Amazon Kindle books are almost up to 199,000 titles today (Friday 11/14).  Do you think they will reach 200,000 by Kindles first birthday early next week?  I do.

Considering that they were at 193,000 just a couple oof days ago it wouldn't surprise me if they reached 200K by Sunday.

I just wish they'd consider MY preferences when adding titles!!  ::)

Wherefore art thou Mr. Clancey?

I imagine that the title count displayed on the Kindle Store page header isnot much more than an approximate sum of all titles.

Having done some research, I think my original number including everything in the Kindle Store, including blogs.

I just got a count of 198,793.  The numbers are creeping up slowly.  Time to check on the titles I have requested ... but without much hope.

They are creeping up slowly - up to 198,812 but I found out what some of the new additions are...

I sorted the list by publication date to see what kind of books are currently being added and there were 5+ pages of pre-order books - due to come out between now and April `09.  That doesn't seem fair to have those add into the count of available titles.

I still think they will make 200K early next week.

Well, that is a heck of a lot more fun than watching the Dow Jones averages. At least something is going up! :D

I get 198883. I think the other number might be all Kindle products...they tricked me before that way!

I'm so confused. When I published my first book for the Kindle, it was ranked at 800,000. Do they weight that or something?

Jeff
I wonder if for the rankings, they are ranking all books?
