I read somewhere that Amazon has a million Kindle books for sale (I have no idea if that number is correct or not). Made me wonder how many of us indie writers there are?

They have a lot more than a million books for sale. I've seen rankings in the 6 millions for paperbacks that don't sell. Amazon has said they now have about 1.2 million Kindles for sale.

I have no idea how many self-published authors are on Amazon.
