A new novel from an internationally acclaimed author Arundhati Roy takes us on a journey of many years – the story spooling outwards from the cramped neighbourhoods of Old Delhi into the burgeoning new metropolis and beyond, to the Valley of Kashmir and the forests of Central India, where war is peace and peace is war, and where, from time to time, ‘normalcy’ is declared.
if you do a Google search they have a lot of complaints. Unfortunately Amazon is not interested in good sellers, just whoever makes the most money for them like Anybook for example, another crook that Amazon allows to stay, despite horrible complaints.

It probably didn’t help that it was constantly out of stock from Amazon directly. In the week leading up to xmas it was largely only available from third-party marketplace sellers at hugely inflated prices.
I agree that’s a big concern, but it’s worth taking into account the volume that these sellers do. hippo books got 131,628 feedback in the past 12 months so probably had well in excess of a million orders. If they got 99.9% of the orders right, which would be fantastic, that would still be 1,000 orders they got wrong. I don’t think 30 complaints on the BBB is a lot for a business doing that volume of sales.

With 2019 now officially here, it’s time to take a look back at last year to see what was and wasn’t so good. The folks over at Amazon have done just that, compiling lists of what sold best on their site throughout the year, and in the video game department, you’ll see a lot of familiar faces.
Has there ever been a better time to be a gamer? 2017 was an incredible year for the video game industry, almost across the board. Do you even remember the kind of shape Nintendo was in this time last year? Things were looking very, very bad on the back of the company’s enormous Wii U flop, and now Nintendo makes the hottest video game console on the planet. Of course, PlayStation and Xbox fans had plenty to enjoy in 2017 as well, as some of the best games in recent history were released last year. Amazon just shared its list of the best-selling video games of 2017 across all platforms — have you played them all? Check out the full list at this link, or you can see the top 10 best-selling below.
Oh, one more thing. Sometimes I buy books…I never buy books from the above as they are allowed to defy Amazon’s two day to ship product rule and wait until they have a couple thousand orders to send by bulk mail (sometimes takes a week). They also send product under media mail sometimes which is not media, thereby ripping off the post office and they have the audacity to send as printed bound material (meant for looseleaf bound, velostrip bound printed material, etc).

In December 2013 Theresa Regan posted the following figures on her blog representing how many sales we can expect a book to be achieving, depending on its overall sales rank. Of course, these numbers are likely to be rather arbitrary, but they’re interesting nonetheless. Note, these numbers do not apply to product categories other than books. It’s also important to mention again that it’s the sales that cause the ranking. The ranking doesn’t cause the sales.
I am a Part of one of the top 6 Amazon companies in the world. We are selling in com, de, fr and uk and our feedback rates are: com 1 out of 7, uk 1 out of 5.5, fr 1 out of 6.5 and de 1 out of 11. maybe that helps to interpret the feedbacks better 🙂
Specifically, it has sold more than twice as many Echo devices here in the U.S., compared with Prime Day 2016, and more than three times as many worldwide. Insiders at the company, according to one source, say that Echo devices are selling at a rate of “thousands per minute” at the moment. Echo Dot appears likely to sell out first, the source added, although there has been unexpectedly high interest in all of the Alexa-powered products.
Jeff Bezos is a snowy white beard and an arctic fulfilment depot away from being crowned a living Santa Claus, with his Amazon retail empire once again placing itself at the centre of holiday shopping in the US.
Of course, there are some mysteries that we are better off not solving. Were any of us truly happier knowing what ingredients were in Pinkberry? I feel that way a bit about Amazon’s relatively new addictive tool for writers, Author Central. A much more seasoned novelist than I told me about this new service, still in beta form, which allows writers to track actual Nielsen BookScan weekly sales data (the industry standard for tracking print book sales), once the publisher has confirmed that the individual is in fact the actual author.
