Amazon Takes Back Orwell Books from Reader's Kindle

(For General Discussion)

Moderators: Jason, Toothy, Tonyblack

Should books be "kindlized" and if so does the seller have the right to retrieve the book without notice?

No - Down with Kindle. I want "real books!"

Yes, BUT - once you've bought and paid for it, the Kindle copy is as much yours as a paper copy.

Yes, though it would have been a hundred times better if it had been 1984. ;)

It was 1984, that's the one that the student lost with his notes. Animal Farm was another.

Wouldn't Ray Bradbury's Farenheit 451 be even more ironic?
