not true. At this point you're simply trying to rationalize your original post and you really can't. The facts are that e-books now vastly outsell traditional bound books and have for several years now and this book is the top selling fiction book (The Help is second). Nothing you have since posted cancels those facts.

"in the U.K.". Also, the Kindle has only been around for like 5 years and been widespread in the market for even less time than that. {nm}   BionicMoron on Jun 27, 12:24

The book is also the top in the US as well. E-books also now outsell traditional bound books and have for a while now. {nm}   mrbeankc on Jun 27, 13:26

The age of the device is somewhat irrelevant given its current market share, and it doesn't marginalize the success of this title   itsonlyinternet on Jun 27, 14:43

So in short you are discounting the fact that it's the best selling book in the last 5 years for no rational reason. {nm}   mrbeankc on Jun 27, 17:29

Is it the best selling book of the last 5 years?    BionicMoron on Jun 27, 17:49

So your basic arguement is that e-books don't count in terms of sales. Ok. {nm}   mrbeankc on Jun 27, 21:32

Are you sure you know how to read? I haven't said anything remotely like that. {nm}   BionicMoron on Jun 28, 04:51

Not surprised. They need to get this movie into production yesterday. {nm}   MiyazakiFan on Jun 27, 14:50
