Top Eight The Kindle Million Club

Hope you had a Happy 4th of July!

It’s a legal Holiday, workers get the day off, a 20% reduction in their work week.  Top Ten Tuesday has been reduced by 20% to honor Independence Day. (And there happens to be only eight Author’s in the Kindle Million Club.)

The Top Eight Kindle Authors & Members of the Kindle Million Club

On June 20, 2011 amazon announced that John Locke had become the eighth author to sell one million kindle books at the Kindle store, 1,010,370 to be exact (at time of announcement.) Quite an accomplishment but what is really remarkable is he is the first independently published author to do so.

Take note of the dates each authors induction into the club was announced. The announcements are getting closer and closer together reflecting as Kindle eBooks sales exponential growth this year. I’ll bet I can provide number 9 and 10 by months end.
