Amazon actually did something cool


This morning, Amazon sent out a promotional email with free Kindle titles in the Mystery, Thriller & Suspense department. There was a list of 15 books, and The Hollow Tree at Dead Mule Swamp was at the top of the list (don't know if they tailor the order to the recipient- it might not be at the top of everyone's list).

How cool is that?

Now I am second guessing, and wondering if they tailor the lists so closely that it really wasn't even on other people's lists. However it still hovers around #40 for Women Sleuths on Kindle.

Maybe it's tailored, but it's still cool :)

Yeah, I'm thinking it's tailored, but again, like Cindy said, still pretty cool!

That's cool :) But, to be honest, I suspect it's tailored towards your browsing Amazon's website when you're logged in. I've been getting reading recommendations from Amazon with Miro in there and I'm pretty sure not everyone got a recommendation for Miro....

Congrats to still being about #40, though, that's awesome! :)
