Amazon's Kindle Is Its Top-Selling Holiday Item Ever

The Kindle Is Amazon's Best-Selling Gift Item Ever

Fresh off of the holiday, Amazon has announced that the Kindle is its most-gifted item in company history. While the company hasn't released exact figures for the holiday shopping season (which they define as Nov. 15 through Dec. 19), the Kindle outsold popular toys, video games, DVDs, and books. Also of note: on Christmas day, more Kindle books were purchased than actual, physical books, presumably to fill up those brand new Kindle readers!

While the Kindle didn't win the award for your favorite eReader of 2009 — that honor went to Barnes and Noble's Nook — there's no denying the device's popularity, especially as a Christmas gift! I wonder though, if the Nook would have been as popular if it were available to fulfill holiday sales instead of having a long waiting list.

Other geeky holiday bestsellers include the Wii Fit Plus, Super Mario Bros. Wii, and Call of Duty 2: Modern Warfare.
