Amazon Categories

I was on Amazon looking at my book. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B075SG1Q3K/

What’s interesting is the categories.

Amazon Best Sellers Rank: #140,224 Paid in Kindle Store (See Top 100 Paid in Kindle Store)
#504 in Books > Science Fiction & Fantasy > Fantasy > New Adult & College
#592 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Science Fiction & Fantasy > Fantasy > New Adult & College
#944 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Science Fiction & Fantasy > Fantasy > Fairy Tales

Fairy Tales? I didn’t select that…

Look for similar items by category
Books > Literature & Fiction > Mythology & Folk Tales
Books > Science Fiction & Fantasy > Fantasy > New Adult & College
Books > Science Fiction & Fantasy > Fantasy > Paranormal & Urban
Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Literature & Fiction > Mythology & Folk Tales
Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Science Fiction & Fantasy > Fantasy > Fairy Tales
Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Science Fiction & Fantasy > Fantasy > New Adult & College
Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Science Fiction & Fantasy > Fantasy > Paranormal & Urban I did select this one.

I don’t even see one of the other categories I selected on this list at all.
Peculiar.

Do you ever wonder why a book is in a certain category?

  1. I was with my brother at the weekend, and we were looking over our father’s memoirs, White Water Landings. It is about his time in Africa in the 1930s with Imperial Airways and the Flying Boat service. I know I’ve listed it in memoir, aviation/transport, and history. So why did it come up in Sport, for pete’s sake?
