Amazon.com, Inc., (NASDAQ:AMZN) today announced that James Patterson has become the second author to sell over 1 million Kindle books and is now a member of the “Kindle Million Club.” As of yesterday, James Patterson has sold 1,005,803 Kindle books. The Kindle Million Club recognizes authors whose books have sold over 1 million copies in the Kindle Store (www.amazon.com/kindlestore), and refers to paid Kindle book sales. Stieg Larsson, author of the Millennium Trilogy, was the first author to hit the 1 million mark.

“Amazon customers have been James Patterson fans far longer than ‘Kindle’ was a word in our vernacular,” said Russ Grandinetti, Vice President of Kindle Content. “We’re excited that his readers have embraced his many books on the Kindle platform, and we look forward to celebrating the 2 million mark in the future.”

Patterson is the author of more than 65 books that span the genres of suspense, fantasy, romance, historical fiction and children’s. His many books include the popular Alex Cross, Women’s Murder Club and Maximum Ride series. His novels have won numerous awards, including the Edgar, the BCA Mystery Guild’s Thriller of the Year award, the International Thriller of the Year award, and the Reader’s Digest Reader’s Choice Award. One of Forbes magazine’s Celebrity 100, Patterson’s titles have been adapted into both feature film (“Along Came a Spider” and “Kiss the Girls,” starring Academy Award-winning actor Morgan Freeman) and a television series (ABC’s “Women’s Murder Club” starring Angie Harmon).
