It seems like you must be pretty good. A month later sounds like your freebie readers are being converted into fans of the series as they finish the first book. And 10% of the downloaders converting probably means a much larger percentage of the readers are moving on, given only a percentage of the downloaders will read it.
If there's another mechanism there besides conversion, something structural relating to boosting exposure that happens a month later, I'd be interested to hear about it, that's just what came to mind.
