eReader popularity was not exclusive to Amazon this year. Kobo is reporting that they had a record year selling their eReaders and eBooks this holiday season.
Michael Serbinis, CEO of Kobo had this statement: “Earlier this month we predicted that Christmas would be a record breaker for Kobo, and we have exceeded our expectations driving several ebook downloads per second since Christmas Eve. I would like to thank our customers for choosing Kobo to start building their digital library this Christmas. Our success this holiday season is a pre-cursor to a New Year with people reading more than ever thanks to ebooks and Kobo.”
With Amazon and Kobo reporting such successful holiday sales, we expect 2011 to be a good year for eBook sales.
