How many ebooks are available?

More than 10 million.

Although no specific number exists, an article by Glenn Fleishman published in February 2, 2010 in the online news outfit Publicola states that ‘Å“The final count of books published in the U.S. that could be available on ebook readers or via ebook software is likely more than 10 million’.  This number takes into account the 500,000 public-domain titles released by Google in March 2009, the 410,000 unique titles offered by Amazon for its Kindle reader, 600,000 titles offered by Sony for its ebook reader, 1 million ebooks from Barnes and Noble, and millions more copies of electronically-scanned bootleg ebooks or independent efforts by non-affiliated authors.
