Is there a way to filter out certain recommended books? I made the mistake of downloading a few free short stories, and now I get recommendations for them constantly. Sometimes more than full length books. Is there a way to to only search for books of a certain length, say 150 pages or more? Also, I would like to weed out YA books. Thanks!

This might help:

Go to "Your Account" on the top right of this screen.
Choose "Your Recommendations."
Under each of your purchases is "Why Recommended?"
Click on that and click "Don't use for recommendations."

Also, on top of that screen are two things you might try: "Amazon Betterizer" and "Improve Your Recommendations."

A combo of these changes should thin out a lot of your don't-wants.
