Don’t get too used to this style…I’m still experimenting, and had some extra time today. 🙂 It did take more time, but please feel free to let me know what you think about it. I included the size…Amazon says a typical Kindle store book (based on their calculations of the number of books you can put on a Kindle) is about 800kb. The kb size isn’t a great indicator of the length of the work, since an illustrated book will take up a lot more memory than one that isn’t. Still, a very small kb size is going to indicate a short work.

    Your listing style keeps improving. Keep up the good work. Another good improvement might be to list books by “name” authors or publishers at the top of the list. Especially those where you have added a useful comment.

      Thanks for writing, Rick!

      I appreciate the feedback.

      That’s actually something I specifically wouldn’t do. 🙂 I’m a very inclusive person, and I think one of the great things about how e-book distribution has changed the publishing business is that unknown writers’ work can stand side by side with brand name authors. I don’t want to promote a book more because of how it was published, which would happen with name publishers, certainly. I know I have pointed out when name authors are on the list in the name of the post sometimes…I’m going to rethink that. 🙂

  2. Man in the Middle Says:

    Thanks for shortening the categories to one line. Much more readable!
    I also like seeing the book length, as I have no interest in downloading samples, previews, novellas, short stories etc. Amazon already offers what I consider a more convenient sample of all its Kindle books (except in the few cases where authors or publishers have gone out of their way to use up all the sample with fluff – and needless to say, I never buy those.).

  3. GeekyGal Says:

    I know that it is significantly more work for you, but the one line categories with the freebies is a HUGE benefit. Thank you, Bufo. I agree, include them all – or as many as you have time for – but knowing even the genres helps me make decisions about what looks interesting.

    I really like this format! Thank you. It is very helpful.
