Too awesome not to share

This story from the Sydney Morning Herald literally had me loling...big thanks to rappy for pointing this out to me :)

Mega-giant bookseller Barnes and Noble has inadvertently been selling eBook versions of the Tolstoy epic War and Peace with the word "kindled" (as in their rival Amazon's eReader) replaced throughout with the word "Nookd."

ie: "It was as if a light had been Nookd in a carved and painted lantern ..."

In total it occurs eight times in the book.  What a totally brilliant gaffe!
