  1. Thanks for stopping by, Nate. Your point about KDP making it easier to create a print equivalent is a good one. I’m sure that is responsible for some increase in assignments. Considering they revised 2017 numbers, I’m not interested in seeing the 2020 report that will have a full year of KDP Print in it.

  2. I am sure that the fact that Amazon discontinued self-publishing services for several major languages like Russian for example, has something to do with the overall ISBN decrease. I personally know a lot of authors who cannot publish in their languages any longer.
