Here are the highest statistics:

    24% are influenced to buy through websites and blogs.

    Facebook is the top discovery and discussion site.

    42% read to relax.

    78% have read more than seven books in a series.

    41% like FreeBookssy.com to discover new books. You might post your first book in a series there for free, get them hooked, and sell the rest.

    25% want most love/warmth in a story. Romantic novels anyone?

    Kindle owners buy an average of 8.92 books a month (Amazing! How do they find the time?)

    70% enjoy series and standalone books equally.

Just keep in mind that the sample they took may not be representative of all Kindle owners.
