BookChickNews – An Orwellian development rocks the Kindlesphere. Amazon changes its mind about replacing cracked Kindles. Encouraging data indicates that the $9.99 price for new releases is holding its own. Be sure to ask for your $60 refund if you bought a Kindle up to 30 days before the price dropped.

    Be careful with HatchetApp. It is NOT free. Amazon charges for every transfer.

    Just go to the Amazon site and “manage your Kindle” and you will see these charges.
