But but but I never lost the UK nor DE one for this month.  :'(

Oh well... at least I wound up with a record breaking 2 in the US.  ;D (wish we had a happy dance smilie)

Only faith in Baby Jesus will keep the howlings of the dark forest from the front door.
The Brown Bar appraoches on the mid night hour. 

Medieval superstitious metaphors aside, we really are in the fickle hand of fate.  :eek:

the brown bar always scares me. I've gotten used to having it permanently for the .de domain, and don't mind it too much - but its always a nerve-wracking time when US and UK shown nothing but brown bars. Wish Amazon would just accumulate the numbers instead of resetting them each month... *chews fingernails*

Each month the sales of last month disappear and it leaves you with a brown bar until you get sales for the new month.  It's like starting over again.

We will be visited by three ghosts at midnight. It's that last ghost we have to watch out for. Even Tiny Tim left his wooden crutch behind.

I wouldn't mind having both displays, side by side: this month's sales and sales for all times. But I like having the monthly sales right there, so I can easily track how I'm doing compared to last month, and to my monthly goals.

Before you have any sales to count in KDP, it just shows a blank brown bar. It's a glaring reminder that you have no sales yet for the month!
Ah. I haven't seen that yet. My book's not been up that long, and I of course had immediate sales from friends and family. Kindle is slow for me, though, so I guess I'll be getting intimately acquainted with said brown bar. (Wait, that sounds a little wrong.) Oh well, back to work on another book.

Aaaargh, stop it! I was so happy this morning, with the upsurge in sales over the last couple of days. And then I remembered the numbers will all be gone tomorrow.  :'(

Argh! Thanks for the reminder!

These garlic wreathes won't hang themselves, after all...

Aoohhh!!!
The clock of fate is ticking ever closer.
Can you hear the grisley howl from the dark forest. :eek:
