Amazon announced that its Kindle device, an electronic reader, has broken its record for sales in a single month, during November. This information does not even take into account Cyber Monday, which is today.

The company says that the Kindle is the most "wished" for, the most "gifted," and the number one best-selling product across all product categories on Amazon.com.

Using Amazon's Kindle"Kindle is a great gift for anyone who loves to read and it’s flying off the shelves faster than any other product Amazon sells," says Ian Freed, Vice President, Amazon Kindle. "We’re seeing lots of people buying from one to a handful of Kindles as gifts for friends or family, as well as many businesses and other organizations buying Kindles in large quantities for their employees or customers."

Black Friday no doubt played a huge role in the success of the Kindle this month. Reports show that Amazon was the top online retail site on Black Friday.

The most recent Kindle release is selling for $259. Sales of the device will likely be helped even further today, not only because it’s Cyber Monday, but because Amazon is also offering immediate shipment on it today.

Meanwhile, Barnes & Nobles’s Nook, a device that competes directly with the Kindle, has been delayed by a week. The reason for the delay is said to be high demand. It is now supposed to be in stores on December 7.
