Books Top Seller for Internet

It’s books, not gadgets, that is the top selling product online across the world.   According to a new Nielsen report, 41% of internet users worldwide (48 countries) and 38% of US internet users (estimated 57.5 million) buy books online.

Nielsen expects this number to grow.    Foner Books sales statistics show that 2007 sales numbers for Amazon sales are beating out Borders,   $3.58 billion v. $3.41 billion respectively.
