Send your inquiry to kindle-feedback@amazon.com as that is the only way someone from Amazon will see it.

In the meantime, you're the only one that can decide if this "benefit" in addition to the others are worth the cost of Prime to you. Even if they took Kindle First away, Prime would still be worth the cost to me.

Do you mean you have only 4 books to choose from? No. There are thousands of KOLL books to choose from at any time.

Are you referring to the 4 'pre-published' book offers that they let you know about?

In reply to an earlier post on Jul 5, 2014 9:48:41 AM PDT
Very strange. I have been able to find at least one Kindle First book every single month since they have been offered.

You are not obligated to choose one.

If the reason you joined Prime was for Kindle First, with your unsatisfactory experience, you should cancel immediately.

The OP is referring to the Kindle First program, not the KOLL.

The selection of books in the Kindle First program is generally junk (I agree with the OP on that point). But since I use Prime for all of the other features, that one is of no importance to me. I doubt anyone signs up for Prime just for the Kindle First monthly deal... that would be silly.

I hate that too .... when I go to a restaurant and they are offering free sample tastes of things and I don't like them .... why don't they offer more things so i can get something I want to try?

Another point to note: the Kindle First program began in November. Should Prime members that were members prior to that time complain they didn't begin offering this FREE perk sooner?

In reply to an earlier post on Jul 5, 2014 11:33:25 AM PDT
Me too .... and the one month when there was only marginal interest in them I still chose one to try.

That's what I suspected (couldn't remember the name at the moment I was typing - Kindle First - as I've never taken advantage of it myself). Definitely agree that signing up to Prime just for that would be...um...yeah. What you said.

I love to try new authors. Sometimes I read a couple of chapters and decide I don't like the book, but usually, I find a new writer I can enjoy.

My grocery offers free cookies to my kid at checkout. But he doesn't like the choices. Who do I talk to about getting them to offer different cookies?

My dog doesn't like the treats at the PetSmart counter, either.

When I chose one this month, I was offered a coupon to get the other 3 for $1.99 each.

Am I the only one who is tired of people complaining about free things?

Cookies for Kids? My grocery store doesn't have any bakery offerings, free or not, ready when they open at 7am, who do I talk to about this?

ETA: Emerald Coast: no, you're not the only one. lower iqs in general have run high since July 1st for some reason.

T. Cook, go complain to Amazon CS. They have nothing to do with your food shop, but they are certainly used to people complaining. They might give you something free to make you feel better.

School's out.

Or a gym offers free Vitamin Water in berry or lime, but people complain that they don't offer 9 flavors.

Yay, thanks! I'll press Mayday on my K3 in the orignal case(yes) and see what they tell me!

"Am I the only one who is tired of people complaining about free things? "
nope.

Can complain that there are too many free books?

Better replace the battery in it first. ;o)

Only if you have more than 50K of them in your archives.

I wonder how Bobby is doing.

In reply to an earlier post on Jul 5, 2014 12:35:53 PM PDT
I'm sure he has at least 200K in his archives by now.

He's probably gaunt, unshaven, fetid. Feverishly scribbling down arcane nonsense in spiral notebooks.

OMG! LMAO! <snort>
