Amazon Turns 20 Years Old

Wow! 20 years.
Panzer had a long day today. Our tired big bad kitty boy was in the Catosphere on his way home, when he heard laughing and cheering and glasses clinking. Following the sounds took him to the Publishers' Weekly site.

Panzer discovered that according to a post by Jim Milliot, this is Amazon.com's twenty year anniversary. That's twenty years ago they started selling books, then ebooks, then Kindles,

then even more ebooks ...

and then ...

housewares, then electronics, then diapers ... you know all that other stuff they sell now too.

The post includes a history of Amazon from the beginning to now with sales figures from over the years, too.

Panzer says, "This post makes it look like there wouldn't be an ebook market without Amazon."

Note: This post requires a h-u-g-e pot of tea, a h-u-m-o-n-g-o-u-s muffin, and a sleeping bag to take a nap part way through reading the post so you're rested to finish it.

To read the post, tootle over to Amazon
