On the Princelings of the East Amazon.com page there’s a panel of recommendations (customers who viewed this item also viewed) including Pirates at $2.99 from Amazon and “196 used and new from $2.99”. I don’t see the pricing information as I’m a UK customer.
This seems to me to be related to those 420 downloads of the free Kindle Select offer on 20th February. If this is the case I want to tackle Amazon about it. How can people download it free then resell it? (and do I get my cut?)
But having got one of my friends in the US to follow the links through for me, I wonder whether it’s just a marketing thing. The other two books listed alongside it are also shown as “196 used and new from [list price]”. Am I barking up the wrong tree? Is it just an Amazon way of promoting it as a limited offer? I must do some searching on author and kindle forums. I could end up looking silly.
