In which Kai Ryssdal has to settle for $22.40

I got an email from Amazon this morning, telling me I had a credit of $22.40 in my account. It’s a payout from the $166 million e-book price-fixing settlement.

What’s interesting is how they figured out who got how much: It’s $3.17 for each New York Times best-seller you bought, and $0.73 for everything else.
