Get notifications on price changes and new reviews for Amazon books
ReaderScout notifies you when Amazon books get new reviews or change in price. Every twenty four hours, ReaderScout checks for updates in the background - and if a change is found, adds an alert to your toolbar in Chrome.
With Reader Scout, you:
- Save time from regularly checking books
- Notice changes quickly so you can take the necessary action
- Don’t miss out on price opportunities
- Can react to negative reviews
- See new positive reviews as they arrive in the store

Reader Scout also helps authors fight back against Amazon spammers, who can hijack books and change the price. You can read more about how that particular spam occurs here: https://kindlepreneur.com/amazon-printing-scams/
Reader Scout Limitations:
Reader Scout is limited to 5 books per author for the time being because the more users and books we have, the higher the operational costs will go up. However, it is our goal to keep this Reader Scout free - this way, more authors will be able to use it and see if/when they are scammed.
The faster an author picks up on scammers, the sooner they can stop them, and thus the less profitable it becomes for the scammers. If this happens enough, scammers will give up. By limiting to 5 books, we are able to serve more authors in this fight against spammers.
At the moment, Reader Scout is only available for Amazon US. We're investigating how to make it available for international markets, but wanted to make Reader Scout available as fast as possible to help authors fight against spammers. Stay tuned... we're excited to hopefully offer international options in the future.
