AI-Generated Books of Nonsense Are All Over Amazon's Bestseller Lists

June 30, 2023

Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited young adult romance bestseller list was filled with dozens of AI-generated books of nonsense on Monday and Tuesday. As of Wednesday morning, Amazon appeared to have taken action against the books, but the episode shows that people are spamming AI-generated nonsense to the platform and are finding a way to monetize it. If AI-generated nonsense books were those with the farthest reach, then Kindle writers’ income would steeply drop. CLEARLY NOT.”A second Tweet on Tuesday posted a screenshot of the bestseller list at that time. Though these books are no longer on the bestseller list as of Wednesday morning, they are still searchable on the site, and users can even read samples of the books.
