Two kudos for Amazon. The price for "Blasphemy" is now $9.99. Thank you Amazon and I just bought the Kindle version.
Second, I am one of the unfortunates who is having short battery life. A quick call to Customer Service, an explanation to John of the issue, and an email today advising that a new replacement Kindle will be shipped ASAP.
Amazon, you are listening and this will keep me on your customer list.
