One example of the requests that are failing, when trying to look inside this book:

http://www.amazon.com/Essentials-Economic-Applied-Problems-Industry/dp/B008HABLS0/

Is that requests like this one:

Are returning 403 forbidden errors.

For me, looking at two different books still seems to hit that same domain on cloudfront. If others can confirm the same thing, we could just exclude all of d1b14unh5d6w7g.cloudfront.net
