A Personal Note
The last five days, I have suffered from a raging ear infection that put me down for the count. A few errors made it to the site and a few things were put on hold. The Top 4 for 2011 will resume Monday.
Valentine’s Day is just a few weeks away and the books of all things romantic are being offered at great prices. You might want to purchase a few extra for the coming blizzard or spring break or summer vacation. After all, everyone loves a romance.
Updating a book from Manage Your Kindle Page
I received the following e-mail recently from Amazon:

We are happy to announce that an updated version of your past Kindle purchase of Book Book by Author Author is now available. The version you received had the following issues that have been corrected:

Typos existed throughout the book

Before you update to the new version, check to see that all devices that you have used to read this book are connected to a network and that their Annotations Backup settings are turned on. This will ensure that your notes, highlights, bookmarks and furthest reading location are retained in the new version. For help with modifying settings, please visit http://www.amazon.com/kindlesupport.

You can get this new version by going to the Manage Your Kindle page at http://amazon.com/MYKupdate. Find the book in your Kindle Library and click on the “update available” link next to the book’s title. Within 5 minutes, any of your devices that have the eBook currently downloaded and have an active wireless connection will be updated automatically.

Because the book was not active on my Kindle, I downloaded it. Back on the MYK page, when I selected Update this Title, I was given one more opportunity to ensure that I had taken the steps to protect highlights, notes, and furthest page read.

A corrected version of this book is available.

The previous version will be replaced with the corrected version.

Before clicking update, please be sure the wireless and Annotations Backup settings are turned on for each of your devices. Doing so will retain any highlights, notes, and furthest page read. You can check and adjust your Annotations Backup settings by navigating to the settings menu on your device. For further help with modifying settings, go to http://www.amazon.com/kindlesupport and check the help pages for the devices or applications you are using.

Once the update option is selected, it is no longer available.
