I sometimes (not very often) see non-free books with prices below $1.99, however. An example is a book by famous Amanda Hocking (My Blood Approves, in particular) I bought recently, and it was $0.99 for me. Her other books all appear as $2.99, though.

I guess Amazon sometimes waivers delivery fees of some selected books for some reason.
I'm in Thailand, and I cross checked my book's price with a friend in Slovakia. Previously USD4.99, now USD2.99. Don't think my book has been specially selected by Amazon for that kind of treatment. I'm seeing quite a few books that are not "free", at the .99 cents price.

Who knows... maybe a glitch, or maybe it is a market move by Amazon to spur more volume.
