From the Kindle Nation Mailbag: A Fly in Amazon’s Free-Book Ointment

Thanks to Kindle Nation citizen Nancy for an eagle eye and a natural question:

Hi there,

I was just wondering why all the “freebie” classics that are from the early 1900’s and even the 1800’s are showing up on the Contemporary Book List as of yesterday.



Thanks for the question Nancy, and yes, Amazon changed something in the metadata for these titles’ listings in the past few days, and I’m following up with contacts there in hopes that it was simply a mistake by some new Amazon staffer there, or that sort of thing. The first thing I checked was whether older public domain titles had been let in, and they weren’t so, I’m hopeful that it is a human-error glitch.
