Amazon announced that on Christmas day it sold more Kindle ebooks than regular books (and that the Kindle is not the site’s most popular gift ever). Chadwick Matlin outlines at The Big Money the reasons why the Christmas day surge in ebook sales don’t matter. The New York Times suggests each new version of the Kindle may be getting worse, and separately dubs 2010 the “Year of the Tablet.”

    Of course they sold more ebooks on Christmas Day. If you got a Kindle for Christmas, you’d probably want to try it out, which means you’d download a few ebooks that day. No great rush to order a printed book on Christmas Day, since it would take a few days to arrive anyway.
