Tracking reading habits with the Kindle

posted by Jason Kottke   Mar 29, 2010

A list of interesting book-reading stats that Amazon could provide from data collected from Kindle users.

Trophy Books - books that are most frequently purchased, but never actually read.
Burning the midnight oil - books that keep people up late at night.
Read Speed - which books/authors/genres have the lowest word-per-minute average reading rate? Do readers of Glenn Beck read faster or slower than readers of Jon Stewart?
