Add option to only scrape kindle ASIN

Bug Description

Would it be possible to add a feature to prioritise Amazon books when scraping based on if it has a Kindle version ASIN, i.e. the ASIN starts with a B. At the moment roughly half of the downloads have a non-kindle ASIN but if you manually go to and change to "Kindle edition" on the store it displays the equivalent B type ASIN.

This is the required ASIN type for Goodreads integration etc on Kindle and so would be preferable for a lot of people.

I guess this could be done via a checkbox or such in the Amazon metadata download options.
