Amazon doesn't like to talk numbers when it comes to Kindles—a reported 8 million were sold in 2010 alone—but they're happy to confirm this factoid: the new Kindle is the best selling product in the site's history.

The new bestseller status means that Kindle 3 has vanquished Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Book 7) as Amazon's top selling product. It is indeed a nice ebook reader! And while they have you here, Amazon would also like to point out that people bought 13.5 million things on November 29, amount to a record breaking 158 items per second. When's this e-commerce fad gonna end!? [BusinessWire]

DISCUSSION

I think this is only counting the Physical Harry Potter books cause you know ALL (ok most.....(ok some)) of those people are buying that book as soon as they get their kindle.
