Amazon announced today that its catalog of Kindle-exclusive titles had been downloaded more than 100 million times. The online retailer's total includes books that were purchased, downloaded, or borrowed from the Kindle Owners' Lending Library. Amazon's Kindle-exclusive catalog includes more than 180,000 titles.

The retailer noted titles such as War Brides, which has been purchased or borrowed over 270,000 times, A Scattered Life, Easily Amused, and The Long Way Home as being among its most popular titles. The authors of A Modern Witch and Our Husband have sold more than 200,000 copies of their books.
