As I read through the latest 10-Q submission from Amazon (AMZN) representing the 3rd Quarter of 2007 results, the company's sales story is exhibiting accelerating revenue growth.

Summary Points:

- Sales split by region continues to be 55% for North America and 45% for International, consistent with previous reports.
- Electronics and Other General Media segment driving the North America growth
- Media segment leading the International region

I will walk you through the 4 charts below that summarize the sales highlights of
