Kindle-Exclusive eBooks Downloads Hits 100 Million

Amazon reported today that eBooks published exclusively in the Kindle Store have been downloaded more than 100 million times. This includes both purchases and titles that have been downloaded and borrowed from the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library.

The press release explains which titles were the most popular: “Popular Kindle-exclusive titles include ‘War Brides’ by Helen Bryan, which has been purchased or borrowed over 270,000 times and has remained on the Kindle Top 10 list for the past 8 weeks; Karen McQuestion’s books ‘A Scattered Life,’ ‘Easily Amused’ and ‘The Long Way Home,’ which have been purchased or borrowed more than 500,000 times; and Ed McBain’s classic and long-running 87th Precinct series, which debuted in 1956 and is now published for the first time in digital and has been purchased more than 250,000 times since December.”

Amazon is rumored to be working on two new Kindle Fire tablets, which will likely help the company push these numbers even higher.
