I took the kids out for pizza. While we were out I checked my sales rankings on my Kindle (and yeah, I know that's pitiful, I'm working on it, K?) and saw that three of my books were ranked in the top thousand. Wow!!! Such a thing had never, ever happened before. I was pretty darn impressed with myself.
When I got home, I looked and saw that my books' rankings were now marked PAID. In other words, my rankings have improved because Amazon has split the rankings and taken all those annoying free books out of the picture. So it isn't my sales that have changed; it's the list.
Still, I'll take it. It's nice to have higher rankings, even if they ARE only due to an accounting change:-).
