I recieved an email today from Amazon informing me that a book I purchased has been re-edited and that I can download the newer version of it. It a non-fiction book on subject of politics and religion. The email said that "significant editorial changes have been made".
I spoke with an Amazon rep. (best customer service anywhere) who told me that the newer download would change the content of the book I already own, instead of just downloading the new version of the book. This makes it impossible to compare the two. The rep couldn't tell me what chapters or specific content had been affected.
Am I the only one who feels uneasy about re-editing books purchased? It feels a bit Orwellian to me.
