Amazon To Return Copies of Orwell Books

Back in July, Amazon deleted copies of George Orwell's 1984 and Animal Farm from its Kindle reader. The deletion was done without warning, and many people were extremely upset despite being refunded the purchase price. The copies were all purchased legally, but they were sold by an unauthorized publisher. Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos sent an e-mail to all users who had their books deleted, with an apology and an offer to make it right. Amazon will be offering to return the copies of the books, with notes intact, or users can choose a $30 gift card or check.
