yes but it's still only One title. King soloomone Mines. I'm not saying only they should only sell one copy but when a company advertises how many titles they offer in order to get you to used theim, it's more of an advertising gimmick that is meant to give you the "impression" that they have x amount of "different" titles not 70 titles of the same story.

see what I mean.

and yes they all do it, Amazon, BN, all of them. But it just seems to me that Amazon kind of goes overboard with this inorder to say "WE have x amount of titles"
