No, no they haven’t

Lately we’ve been seeing a lot of nonsense like this, from people who apparently cannot read what they wrote (in this case, “Jessica Shambora, Reporter” at CNNMoney.com):

Sales of Kindle books, meanwhile, have surpassed those of hardcover books: Amazon announced last week that it sells 180 Kindle books for every 100 hardcovers.

That second part of the sentence does not support the first part. All Kindle book sales go through Amazon. Only a fraction of hardcover sales go through Amazon. It sure is an exciting statement, though, if one ignores it falsity.
