That tipping point had to happen sometime.

The more Kindle readers being sold the faster the uptake will be, i'm sure.

UK: Amazon Reports It's Selling More eBooks Than Print Books [bbc.co.uk]
The UK's biggest book retailer Amazon now sells more ebooks than hardbacks and paperbacks combined, the company has said.

For every 100 print books sold through the site, Amazon said it sold 114 titles for its Kindle e-reader device.

It added that the average Kindle owner bought up to four times more books than they did before owning the device.

I find that hard to believe.

Or it means that Amazon is not selling that many real books.
