Kindle Free Promo and the Lending Library

I noticed an interesting bounce in sales after the most recent free promotion of my novel Basketball Obsession while enrolled in KDP Select. Straight after the two day free promotion ended, there was a lift in pages read through Kindle Unlimited or the Kindle Lending Library. Was this just a coincidence or linked? I have no idea. If it's linked then I'm thinking people enrolled in Kindle Unlimited, also see the promotions and borrow the book instead of reading it for free. They've paid for the subscription so why not? Some borrows are just a few pages, below the 10% mark that would have applied before. Maybe those people are checking the book out. With the way the new system works, you get paid for that.
