Amazon Has Sold Almost 5 Million Kindle Singles

Amazon has reportedly sold almost five million Kindle Singles since January 2011.

The new eBook format dominated online chatter this week as The New York Times profiled chief David Blum. AppNewser has more details:

Kindle Singles is designed as a place where journalists and authors can publish works that are longer than your typical magazine article but shorter than a book. This includes essays, novellas and long form stories. The format has attracted the likes of Stephen King, Chuck Palahniuk, and Lee Child, among many others. The New York Times points out that the business is profitable, having sold five million copies since it launched in January 2011. The Times even asserts, “…the program is as much about gaining entree into the literary world as it is about revenue.”
