Feedbooks have announced on their Blog that they have now surpassed 1,000,000 downloads of ePub files – this is a serious achievement!
The release of the Stanza eBook reader on the iPhone and the ePub update to the Sony Reader have of course helped greatly, but this is still impressive as they have managed this milestone in just short of 2 months.
It must be noted though that this is not necessarily the number of ePub books, I would imagine the Feed count will far exceed the eBook count.
UPDATE:Hadrien from Feedbooks has confirmed that at least 90% of the downloads are of actual eBooks.
This shows real indications that eBook users are wanting DRM-Free ePub formatted eBooks. Another reminder for publishers to reconsider their use of DRM on eBooks.
