Online retail giant Amazon is experiencing some of the best Kindle sales this season. The company announced that its popular device had its best-selling holiday weekend so far. Amazon is moving forward with chasing short form of e-books with a new publishing shop.
The first announcement by the company was made on December 4, 2013 and it was stated that last weekend was the best holiday shopping performance for the Kindle so far.
