  1. The beer book is another repeat, bought January 31 this time. It was an enjoyable read, actually.

    The beginners guide to iPad productivity blah is also a repeat, May 30, although I didn’t bother actually reading it even after I bought it, so I can’t comment on the quality.

    Do you know if books that are repeated here have been at $0 the whole time, or have they hiked to their normal price in between and are now dropping to $0 again for a brief fresh bump in popularity?

    • I spend a lot of time wandering around on Amazon.com Many books stay at $0 even after they have dropped off the bottom of the Top 100 Free list. Maybe they haven’t proved to be all that popular at $0, so the author/publisher decides that no one is likely to buy them.

      For the Top 100 Paid, they tell how many days that each book has been on that list. I wish that they would do that for the free books…or even state how long the book has been offered for free. With Vook releasing so many books, no book stays on the Top 100 Free for very long.

      • Jasper – what Irish said. It varies.

        Amazon does seem to have a favorite set of authors and publishers and for their books it offers them free every few months.

        So most of these would be free after an interval.

    • I am not sure where I originally found this link:

      473 Free Kindle Book Offers

      but it will take you to a list of 473 books most of which are free. Some are on the top 100, some have been on the top 100, some may not have been on any list.

  2. Hello switch11. I would like to read an analysis from you about the book market. Facts about whats the most profitable genre, how textbooks stands with other genres, and what do people read more on USA, JAPAN, UK and other rich countries, benefits or reading fiction instead of non-fiction and vice-versa.

    • For that kind of in-depth market research (on behalf of an aspiring author, perhaps?) I’d be tempted to ask a decent hourly rate, if I was him. :)

    • Most of that falls outside my area of expertise (which is limited to making fun of bad book covers and complaining about how the 5-way is now in the middle instead of at the right side).

      Seriously, I don’t know very much. I could tell you this though – There are not going to be many profitable niches left in books.

  3. Aww, common Switch, I’ve been breathlessly awaiting the deal on ‘How to Grow Carrots the Right Way in Farmville’. :)

  4. Liquid Smoke is listed under “free books” but when you try to download it, it says it’s $7.96. Free or not?
