Pigs fly! And Amazon releases sales info!

Here's some FASCINATING news: Amazon released a teeny, tiny bit of information about e-book sales! (Via PV.) OMG! This is especially exciting to the people in Hell, who also received a glass of ice water.

What did Amazon say? That e-book sales increased 70% over the past year!

So, here's the score so far on e-book growth in 2012:

Amazon: 70% increase

Publishers: 34% increase

Barnes & Noble: 13% increase

Just looooook at those numbers. Looooook at the big fat gaps in growth rates.

Look askance at any projection that relies on just one of those growth rates.
