Orwell Animal Farm 1000Users of Amazon.com’s e-reader device were surprised and unsettled over the past day to receive notice that George Orwell works they had purchased, including “1984” and “Animal Farm,” had been removed from their Kindle and their money refunded.

Unfortunately, this was not because these are two of the most overrated books ever written, but rather because someone had pirated ebooks to sell, or something. Animal Farm ain’t that bad, but 1984 is a fucking debacle, yet people love it.

But, seriously, hey, next time go to a used bookstore and pick up a copy for a couple bucks. It won’t VANISH on you.
