    There’s a note next to the update that says there’s a known issue and *not* to update. Has the author had any problems? I’ve never seen Apple take that action.

        Some users have seen their collection of on-device documents/books deleted as a result of this update. I’d avoid it until they work out the issue.

          Agreed – Amazon are aware of the issue affecting some people and are working on a solution
