Apologies to Greg for starting a new thread for his topic, but the point of his original post has become lost and it is one that I agree with and think is important for the future of the Kindle and ereaders in general.
I would be very grateful to Amazon if they were to provide more options for filtering books while shopping. In particular I would like the ability to screen self-published books. There are times when all I want to consider are books published by traditional publishers (not just the big six, but maybe the big 50?).
I am glad that Amazon has provided the opportunity for so many new authors to make their work available to the world. I may even take advantage of it my self at some time. But the volume of material has become and will only become more, unwieldy. I don't hate self-published authors. I don't wish them anything but joy and many sales, but I don't always want to have to consider them when I am looking for something new to read.
I hope this brings the conversation back to a helpful place.
