I can’t believe how seven years have gone by so quickly. It feels like it was just yesterday that I first began chatting with then-VP for digital Maria Thomas about the possibility of joining NPR. It was a weird idea at the time: I was a blogger, a telecom policy wonk, an Internet activist. Apart from running a music magazine in college – mainly for the free concert tickets – I had almost no journalism experience. But I figured what the hell – the worst that could happen would be to quit and find another job, back doing what I was doing before.
Best of luck in the new world, Andy!
Based on its research and analysis, CIRP estimates that Kindle owners spend $1,233 per year on Amazon compared to $790 per year for Amazon shoppers who don’t own one of the company’s e-readers or tablets. Kindle owners aren’t necessarily buying more at a shot, but are buying more frequently.
