Amazon splits Bestsellers into Top 100 Paid and Top 100 Free

Amazon's splitting of  Top 200 Amazon Kindle Bestsellers  into groupings of 'Top 100 Paid' and 'Top 100 Free' categories could not be done better for fair exposure of both paid and free books.

Those interested also in the New York Times Bestsellers available on Kindle can see those here.  Note that with the Big5 publishers going for the Agency model for pricing, the NYT bestsellers are now "From $9.99" instead of mostly $9.99.

On the same page as the NYT bestsellers are another category, "New and Noteworthy - Recently Published Books Available on Kindle" which currently carries nine Kindle books, with pricing from $4.99 to $9.99.

NOTE: TO AVOID SPAM being posted instantly, this blog uses the "DELAY" feature.

Am often away much of the day, and postings won't show up right away. Posts done to use referrer-links may never show up.

Usually, am online enough to release comments within a day though, so the hard-to-read match-text tests for commenting won't be needed this way.

Feedback and questions are welcome. Thanks for participating.

Technical Problems?
If you're having problems leaving a Comment, Google's blogger-help asks that you clear the '' cookies on your browser's Tools or Options menu bar and that will fix the Comment-box problems (until they have a permanent fix).

IF that doesn't work either, then UNcheck the "keep me signed in" box -- Google-help says that should allow your comment to post (it's a workaround to a current bug).
Apologies for the problems.

TIP: There's a size limit. If longer than 3500 characters or so, in a text editor, make two posts out of it.
