Strange goings on with rank on Amazon Sales

Apologies if this has been discussed in the past.
I had a single sale yesterday and 5 pages read on the KENP thing.
On the back of that monster day, my sales rank moved from 185,000 to 27,000 and top hundred in 2 genres.
Happy? Yes!
Confused? Yes!
Is there an explanation...?

RE: Strange goings on with rank on Amazon Sales

As I understand it re. borrows - your rank improves at the point at which the reader first makes the borrow, rather than when they actually read the book. So if ten people borrow your book the rank will improve even if no pages read are showing up. So your rank change probably indicates a number of borrows for which the pages read will show up according to when, and how quickly, the borrowers read.
