Do we believe Amazon?

One of my publishers once told me that Amazon's "Only 1 left. More on the way" is bogus. Indeed, I've seen it for ebooks. Yes, better get right on getting some more of those. o.0

So do we believe the "Customers who bought this book also bought"...? I think maybe I do.

SHIFT HAPPENS became available as an Kindle ebook on Amazon a couple of weeks ago. The "Customers who bought..." line was empty. Then one book appeared. Then another. Two days ago there were about 2 dozen other books listed. Today there's 68. Do I believe that at least 68 people bought the Kindle edition of my book? I'd like to think so. The new Author Central isn't very enlightening.

What do you think. Is this a marketing gimmick or a ray of hope?

Thanks.
