Free is a very good price - Amazon to splits its Kindle "bestseller" list
Free is of course a very good price. But does it count as a bestseller? For a long time, Amazon has counted downloads of free Kindle books in its sales rank, so many of the top 100 are free books. (Hand of Fate currently sits at 187.)
Now Amazon is going to split the list, which may result in fewer publishers offering free downloads of one of an author’s books to promote the sales of another.
