hmm .. *scratching my head* .. is that a kindle specific problem?
i download ALL purchases to my computer, rip the DRM (if present), archive on
external drive and copy to my ebook reader .. (Calibre is my friend) - i don't
leave stuff "on the cloud" (clouds can dissipate easily)
but i also tend to read a specific book on a specific platform - i dont wander
with the book over several platforms
maybe that's why i don't have that particular problem
