Why not just download the whole book when it was free in the first place?

But Amazon is pretty good, if there was an error on their part. I've gotten refunds before.

The announcement said it would be free till February 28th, like the other Random House books that were offered for free at the same time (and still are).

The odd thing, going back to my OP, is that while it is $9.99, it still shows up in the middle of all the free books.

Looks like Amazon does not know themselves that it mysteriously morphed from $0.00 to $9.99. And it should not have. Ah, well....

A similar thing happened to me a while back. After the Tor free eboks deal was over the books were still appearing at 0.00 so I tried getting them all but unfortunately only got a few. It was no big deal because I had already downloaded them via the emails but it would have been nice to have them all in my kindle library. I clicked one and it charged me so I emailed amazon and got it refunded.
