As the Washington Post recently noted, most of the bestsellers at Amazon’s Kindle store are free.

Although the list can change moment to moment, when we checked Tuesday morning, 75 of the top 100 titles were giveaways. The top price was $9.99.

The book industry is being transformed by digital distribution just as the newspaper industry has been. Let’s hope book publishers have been paying attention.
