As you’re probably aware, Walter Isaacson’s Steve Jobs biography is pretty popular. It’s been pretty popular on Amazon too, of course.

As previously reported, it was the top-seling book of the holiday season on To put that into persepctive, though, Amazon also shared the following fact:

Amazon customers purchased enough copies of Walter Isaacson’s “Steve Jobs” book to create a stack taller than Mt. Everest.

Mt. Everest peaks at 29,029 feet above sea level. It’s a fairly thick book, but it’s not that thick. It’s 630 pages.

Other “holiday fun facts” from Amazon around customer purchases include:

  • The cumulative weight of the Bowflex 552 Adjustable Dumbbells purchased by Amazon customers would outweigh more than 70 adult elephants.
  • If you unfolded and stacked each pair of jeans purchased by Amazon customers this holiday, the height would be 2,500 times taller than the Statue of Liberty.
  • Amazon customers purchased enough sweaters to outfit each of Santa’s reindeer during Christmas Eve deliveries for the next 14,000 years.
  • Amazon customers purchased enough copies of Just Dance 3 to give 15 copies to each person who participated in setting the world record for simultaneous dancing.
  • Amazon customers purchased enough HeatMax HotHands Handwarmers to give a pair to each resident of Iceland.
  • Amazon customers purchased enough Rory’s Story Cubes to give a cube to each person watching the New Year’s Eve ball drop live at Times Square.
