    Amazon is bragging these days, and it has good reason to. The company’s flagship ebook reader has hit some pretty significant milestones. The Kindle has now become the “most gifted item” in the company’s history. On top of that, the company claims ebooks outsold physical books for the first time ever on Christmas day.

    “We are grateful to our customers for making Kindle the most gifted item ever in our history,” said Jeff Bezos, founder and CEO of Amazon.com. “On behalf of Amazon.com employees around the world, we wish everyone happy holidays and happy reading!”

    So how many Kindles did the company sell? Ah, there’s the catch! Amazon has not released any sales figures. But the company did release a whole bunch of fun facts on other products it sold over the holiday season, including the most remote shipment it made.
