We decided to have a look at Amazon.com books and see if it discriminates (ok maybe that is a harsh word) by language.
They, of course, don’t write these books – they just sell them. They are US headquartered and it is almost obvious that a majority of their books are probably written in English.
The results were interesting.
A staggering 62% of the books were in English
German books were at 8%, followed by French books at 7.9%
The total number of books were 33 million and 20.8 million out of that were in English.
