I’m writing this as an ADDENDUM to clarify information in my blog post: The New Kindle Unlimited – What It Means For Authors and Readers!
After getting such conflicting information about whether or not we were going to get just the metric, “borrowed pages read” replacing the number currently in the “borrows” column, or whether or not we were going to get “borrowed pages read” AND “number of borrows,” I asked Amazon to clarify.
I was told that they have been getting an overwhelming amount of feedback (you go guys! 😉 ) about not getting BOTH the number of borrows AND the number of borrowed pages read.
In light of that, they are CONSIDERING this as an option. They cannot say that it will be out by the time the program is implemented in July, nor can they say that they will ever give both numbers (number of borrows AND number of pages read).
But they have heard the outcry from authors, which has been far bigger and more vehement than they expected, and they may introduce both numbers in the future.
For now, we’re going to have to deal with “borrowed pages read” replacing the number currently in the “borrow” column.
