  1. You talked me into it. I will download the story. Don’t hate me if I return it! LOL

  2. I’ve only returned an ebook once and that’s because I had click “BUY” twice. It happens. Could be that sorta reason as well. Loving the series.

    • Thanks, Laura.

      Sure, honest returns happen. But what a lot of us see is a return one day. A return on the next book the in the series shortly thereafter. And so on.

  3. I’m shocked people would actually return an e-book– and Amazon allows this? Shame on them. Unless, of course, like someone said in the comments, she pressed the buy button twice, clearly because of a sudden burst of excitement over reading the book. Then, okay, I can see that.

    • An accidental purchase happens from time to time. But when I see this happen it happens across several books in a matter of days. There’s no accounting for some people.

  4. There was a ‘reader’ on the Amazon forums who readily admitted to returning like 70% of their kindle purchases and was whining abt losing the privilege …it just pissed me off so much
