Amazon Customer Service RE: Formatting problems

My email to CS this morning:

I purchased iPod & iTunes for Dummies.

The title shows up on my Kindle as "iPod<sup></sup> & iTunes<sup></sup>...". The title at the top of each page reads the same way. I've tired to change it via my computer with no luck yet.
Their reply:

I'm unsure if this means I get a free copy of the corrected version or have to delete what I have and re-buy at a later time. I'm going to send a follow-up reply.

It's nice that they contacted me within 4 hours of my report on a Saturday.

Sounds to me like you get a free updated version when it's available.

Unless you opt for the refund.

To me it sounds like you get your money back and can at some time in the future hopefully they will have an updated edition you can purchase.

Thanks for reminding me to update. I kept the book, waited a few days for the corrections to be made (could have been sooner but I didn't know). I then deleted the book from my Kindle and then went to my Media Library and re-sent it to the Kindle via whispernet (or download). The corrected version is now on my Kindle and the coolest part is that my bookmarks are still intact.

That is cool. It's nice to know they actually listen when you report a problem.
