Kindle Ratio for 15 Nov 2010: 65%

So, here we are with the Kindle Ratio (what proportion of the last 20 books I’ve read are available on Kindle) as of right after my post about Ender’s Shadow. The percentage goes up a bit because this last book was available, where as the one that dropped off was not. As mentioned, this metric is now biased by the fact that the way I pick books now prefers Kindle books. For those interested, the 20 books this was based on were:

  1. YES – Ender’s Shadow
  2. YES – The Elegant Universe
  3. YES – Children of the Mind
  4. NO – Introduction to Algorithms
  5. YES – Xenocide
  6. YES – The Geography of Bliss
  7. YES – Speaker for the Dead
  8. NO – First Break all the Rules
  9. YES – Ender’s Game
  10. YES – Until the Sea Shall Free Them
  11. YES – Foucoult’s Pendulum
  12. YES – Java The Complete Reference
  13. NO – Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
  14. YES – The Audacity of Hope
  15. NO – Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
  16. NO – Data Mining
  17. YES – The Children of Hurin
  18. YES – Dreams from my Father
  19. NO – The Odyssey
  20. NO – Rise and Fall of the Confederate Government (Vol II)

I’ll note as I have the last few times that other editions of The Odyssey and the Rise and Fall of the Confederate Government (Vol II) are available on Kindle, just not the specific editions I read.
