Just curious...if/when you launched a new book, and did the free promo, about how many downloads did you see in the first day?

In early March my book gained about 15000 downloads over about 3 days. I think it was pretty evenly spread, so about 4000-5000 downloads
on the first day.

However, a September Select promo only gained me about 1800 downloads on the first day (which quickly shrivelled in download rate
for the rest of the promo).

So both number of downloads, and consistency, seem to have dropped a lot over the last 6 months.

Reminds me of the college newspaper that reported the bookstore's having a "profit loss" for the year.
