I’m pretty damn pleased with the results. I’ll admit I long to go multi-platform, but I’ve had such success with my book on Kindle Unlimited, I can’t see myself taking it off of Select.

Both graphs seem to be steadily climbing (I pray the trend continue) but the growth rate of my KU reads seems even higher.

I wish I could ascertain how much of my ranking was based on sales and how much on KU lends:

Obviously, if taking off select would drop my ranking significantly, I think it would be foolish to do.
