Amazon has revealed their top ten selling items for the festive period. Unsurprisingly the Amazon Kindle took their top spot with some impressive sales figures. Finally we can have some idea of how popular the megabrands Kindle E-reader actually is after their pre-Christmas sales announcement only revealed they had sold ‘millions of Kindles’’.
Amazon was clearly pleased with the popularity of their device. Brian McBride, Managing Director of Amazon UK commented, “This was the first Christmas that Kindle and Kindle 3G have been available from Amazon.co.uk and the demand has been exceptional.”
December 6th was the busiest day for the online retailer with 2.3 million units sold, they say at the peak of the Christmas period 27 items were bought every second on the site – clearly the poor weather conditions didn’t put people off buying online this year.
The popular animated movie Toy Story Three bagged second place beating off stiff competition from Call of Duty: Black Ops which took third position. Take That managed fourth position with the blockbuster movie Inception taking fifth place.
Number six was taken by Jamie Oliver with his 40 minute meals books, seventh by the latest Now 77 cd, eighth by Twilight: Eclipse, ninth by Downton Abbey and tenth Just Dance 2 for the Nintendo Wii.
