KDP Select Figures

Figures reported by thenextweb.com...

Just 24 hours after it shared the news that its Prime shipping service is now more popular than its free Super Saver delivery option, Amazon has followed up with the news that titles exclusive to its Kindle marketplace have been downloaded over 100 million times.

Amazon says that its Kindle store now features 180,000 exclusive titles and its users have either bought, downloaded or borrowed them from the Kindle Owners' Lending Library, which provides free downloads for its Prime subscribers for an almost infinite amount of time.

The company has achieved the milestone in less than a year, helped by thousands of authors that have made their titles exclusive to Kindle via Amazon's KDP Select program. The company is quick to point out that books published under the KDP Select program in July have received 77% more royalties from paid sales than before they enrolled.
