And this is why I like my Paper books!!

This morning while drinking my morning java and browsing the new issue of Maclean's Magazine, I came across an interesting article in the "Good News / Bad News" section. It was about how went in to its customers Kindle accounts and simply deleted 2 books from their customers accounts.

You can read the article below;


Hard to know which is more's willingness to flout the privacy of people using its Kindle electronic readers, or its imperviousness to irony. The world's biggest online bookseller floored Kindle users when a major publisher changed its mind about allowing an electronic edition of two of its books to go out. Numerous copies had already been sold, so Amazon simply went into its customers' Kindle accounts, electronically deleted the books and credited the customners with refunds. The titles in question? 1984 and Animal Farm, by George Orwell.
