Once again, it's about the almighty dollar and not about customer satisfaction.
OTOH, there have been plenty of sites that have popped up to replace Lendle.
Last I saw, they were back and running again...
They, and another site I know of, had to reprogram their browsers to use Amazon in a different way. Lendle's programming was doing something that Amazon's servers didn't like, so they had to pull their access until the problem was corrected.
Another site had to change their name (it had "kindle" in it) and redo their book search as well to work better with Amazon.
