As part of the on-going effort to create the narrative that only “real” books published by “real” publishers are legitimate and that e-books published electronically by indie authors and small presses are bad and you should never ever ever buy them, NBC news offers this little gem:
I’ll cut to the facts: An Amazon customer got a replacement Kindle. She had technical issues with hers and Amazon replaced it free of charge.
Now, in the time between buying the first one and getting her replacement, she moved from the UK to Norway. When she tried to log into her account, which had been set up in the UK, from a server in Norway, she found that her account was suspended. She contacted Amazon customer service, and they fixed the problem.
Yep, a real horror story. I got chills.
