I got this email just now from Amazon.com help services. This is the exact text, and I kid you not: its quite stunning, and leads me to ask 'what the hell is going on here?'

What? WHAT? No really, WHAAAAT???? The first thing that comes to my mind is that they've rectified the mistake by 'making the item available'. Since my order was free shipping, I guess my items were of lower priority and so someone with higher priority took the book before I did. And they've simply fixed that because I was pissed :) I dont believe for a second that they sent me an email 'in error' because all the details on the website changed to reflect this 'error'.
Well, this is good I guess. I'm just curious as to what the real story is.
