A Book Update

Lighter, Smaller, Faster
AND less expensive!
Who could ask
for more?
Amazon is great about making updated books you may have purchased very easy to update on your little machines. Since I have multiple Kindles on my account (two are with relatives in other parts of the country), all I did was answer yes in the first line of my reply to the following email and I felt comfortable knowing no matter where that book was, it would be updated automatically.


We are happy to announce that an updated version of your past Kindle purchase of Love of Cooking: Soups, Stews, & Chili by Maggie Brooks is now available. The version you received had the following issues that have been corrected:

Significant editorial issues were present.

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

You can get this new version by going to the Manage Your Kindle page at 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.

Alternatively, you can reply to this email with the word "Yes" in the first line of your response. Your e-mail response must come from the e-mail address associated with your Amazon account. We will update your book within 2 hours of receiving your email.

We thank you for your business with Amazon.
