This seems to be a new "improvement" that I honestly hate and wish I could opt out. When I click on an author, Kindle is now returning an Author Page. I have three issues with this. 1)Only 4 books are listed on the screen so you need to move page by page. If I click on a book to read its description or just flat out buy it, I can't get back to the page I was on. I get taken back to the first page. Very irritating especially if I wanted to keep looking for books by that author. 2) The default sort is by Popularity. I like looking at Publication Date. It allows you to change the sort to Publication, however same as issue 1), after clicking on a book, you are returned to Page 1 and the sort is Popularity. 3) When the Author Page loads, each books little cover icon loads one by one and the time to do this is ridiculous.
I would rather go back to the old search results where you got a listing of 6 books and the Back button returned you to your last page of the search results as opposed to the first page.
