Issue with today's BOTD

(Formerly the "Support, Feedback and Forum Announcements" forum.)
Please help us make Online Book Club even better! Please post suggestions, feedback and ideas for new features. Wild brainstorming and potentially 'crazy ideas' are super-strongly encouraged! :)

For new members (or old members who run into an issue), please make a post in this forum asking any questions you have about using the site and how it works that are not answered in the FAQ. Not only are we happy help you, but also we can use your feedback to make the site better for tomorrow's new member! A lot of the instructions throughout the site and answers in the FAQ are there because someone else pointed out that it wasn't clear before.

You should click on the Amazon link in the book Shelf to go to the book.

You go to the book page on Amazon, and then click on the book cover to sample it.

In order to participate in today's BOTD it is asks to download a free book copy from Amazon but it says "This title is not currently available for purchase" when I click the link.

Yeah, uh, Amazon now requires an actual shipping address as proof of residence. I'm running into this problem as well. I usually hit enter before I go get the sample because sometimes I forget to do that if I'm not sure I'll be able to do the social media posts. Is there a way to reverse this since I'm also having issues with the BotD?
