Kindle Beats 'Harry Potter' On

Was the Kindle on your holiday wish list this year? If so, apparently you weren't the only one who wanted it. Not only did you guys name the nifty E-book reader as the fifth thing you want this year, but just recently announced that their third generation Kindle beat J.K Rowling's 'Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows' book as the best-selling product in Amazon history. Crazy right?

On November 29th, 2010, Amazon's peak holiday shopping day, customers bought the Kindle and other items online at a record-breaking 158 items per second.
'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo' was the most purchased and the most-gifted Kindle book on Christmas Day, according to the online retailer. They also announced that customers bought enough copies of 'Eclipse' for Edward Cullen to watch the movie 1,000 times a day for all 109 years of his life. Woah!

Did you get or want 'Eclipse' on DVD? Would you rather get your hands on a new Kindle or the 'Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows' book? Or wait, here's an idea, how about HP7 ON a Kindle?! J.K. Rowling has to sign over the rights first. Those HP books are pretty hefty though. Let us know in the poll below.
